Day 36 - Island with a heritage trail

Day 36 - Island with a heritage trail
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

EVERY area you explore has a history behind it, explaining the area's origins and different features and industries appearing over the years. A lot of this history is easily forgotten, but thanks to the work of dedicated locals, the history can live on through museums and heritage trails. There are a lot of heritage trails around the Brisbane area, with markers and information signs leading the way. This week marks the autumnal equinox. Although many parts of the world would be seeing brilliant colours in foliage as trees lose their leaves for the winter, the subtropics is distinctly lacking in deciduous trees, so there is no change here.

Today's hike takes me around Macleay Island following its 22 kilometre long heritage trail. I return to the jetty in the late afternoon and head across to Lamb Island for the sunset.
