Flower Fields

So I’m starting a new job tomorrow and I figure, why get a good night’s rest beforehand when I could be writing a new blog post instead! Seems only logical.

I realise these photos are long overdue since sunflowers are only in bloom in Australia until late January and it’s now April. Better late than never I guess! These were taken on trip to Allora in the countryside of south-eastern Queensland. There are no designated places for viewing the sunflowers so we just drove along the New England Highway and pulled off whenever we spied any. I visited sunflower fields last year in Japan but they were nothing compared to these giants which were double the size! In fact, I took the first photo while standing on top a 2 meter high fence just so I could see over the flowers.

A trip out to the sunflower fields and back from Brisbane is definitely possible in a day but if you do decide to stay the night I recommend driving up to Toowoomba as Allora itself is a very small town. The best time of year to see the flowers is late December to early January.

You might as well pencil it now for the next Christmas Holidays…
