The rather quaint Spring Bluff Railway Station

near Toowoomba, Qld.

We stopped here to both check out this pretty little station and for a spot of geocaching.

    What a beautiful location, great light also. Definitely looks like it should be part of a novel or a children's book.
  • David de Groot said:
    It is indeed, and apparently in Spring it's awash with flowers too.
    Sure did. Well Lea found it actually, but mostly because I couldn't bend over that day (bad back).
    Yeah, this one apparently sees a few coal trains still.

    It's very much like that Wes. The previous shot on my stream is at the same location, behind the station house and up the hill.

    It is indeed a pretty place Michelle, well worth dropping in to if you're up that way. Plenty of space for a picnic, and there's a café there too.

    Great shot David.
    Good to see you getting up to Toowoomba :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :) Had a killer of a bad upper back that day.
    I used to live in Toowoomba many moons ago, nice place really.

    This is gorgeous! I've lived in or near Toowoomba for over 25 years, but have never been to Spring Bluff - how lame is that!

    I must say, I hadn't been while I was living there either.

    Well, given how hard it was to get there, I'm hardly surprised - I'm surprised anyone has been there at all!
    (Our GPS wanted us to drive down the steep, roadless hill above it. It spent 20 km from the 'this is *not* the way' point telling us to do a u-turn. Very amusing)
