Historical House - Hervey Bay

Historical House

Brooklyn House Entrance

The grounds of Brooklyn House are like a big park. The Mansion is almost hidden by all the trees and shrubs surrounding it. In fact, when you first drive up, the only thing you see is this entrance

Passion...

I mean the fruit variety.. 'Passionfruit' grows here in abundance.. I have a side fence completely covered in the vine, and the flowers it produces are simply beautiful.

Botanical Gardens - Hervey Bay

Botanical Gardens

Botanical Gardens

Not very many visitors to this city think about spending some time at the botanical gardens.. Which is a real shame, as they really are lovely.
This is possibly due to the fact that the gardens are not in the main part of town, but slightly out of the mainstream area.

Sunset - Hervey Bay

Sunset

Toogoom

Toogoom is a small township a few miles north of Hervey Bay... just take care not to blink, or you may miss it.. lol..
There is a lovely hotel/resturant right on the beach, with an indoor/outdoor eating area.
You can wine and dine, or just enjoy a beer,
and the tranquil setting. And enjoy a beautiful sunset.
