'As rural as it comes', Mitchell Creek Road, Yabba Valley, Queensland

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Mitchell Creek Road connects the Yabba and Kandanga Valleys by passing through a gap between Mt Grainger (pictured) and Mt Kandanga. Most of the road is within Imbil State Forest, passing through Dwyer and Mitchell Logging Areas.

At this point, the road passes a farm dam on freehold land, then turns to enter the forest. Dwyer Creek, a tributary of the Yabba, is in the midground with Mt Grainger rising in the background.

Greetings Berend. Thanks for your appreciation of the image. It is like having a holiday just to be able to walk or drive through the forests and among the farms.

Looks like a fertile spot Ian and makes for a lovely scene ~ Best wishes ~ nick

This valley is as good as it gets, Nick. There are those who live here who hope no one else knows about the valley, and those who live and invite the world to come and taste and see.

Not as snowy as the Yorkshire Dales, not as majestic as Lauterbrunnen, not as renowned as the Valley of the Nile, but this is my preference for living and the others are for visiting!

I'll have to drop in for a view when I eventually get to Oz and my Cousin's place further up :~)

The welcome mat will be out, Nick - along as you bring your camera!
