Day 5 - Sandblows and distant views

Day 5 - Sandblows and distant views
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

THE SHORT subtropical winter is quickly coming to an end with the worst of the nasty westerlies almost fully past. The spring flowers now begin coming out covering the heathlands in spectacular seas of colour.

Today's journey takes me back onto the Cooloola Sandmass thr0ugh the stunted forest before suddenly coming out onto the enormous Cooloola Sandblow. This is one of the world's best parabolic sandblows stretching almost the entire width of the sandmass. After returning into the forest the track winds its way towards the southern end of the sandmass where the vegetation on the descending slopes become scrubby heathland giving spectacular views up and down the coast.
