Tabletop Mountain, Toowoomba, QLD.

Date: 26 August 2015

Just got back from hiking up Tabletop Mountain, and it wasn't easy. Went with WinZie, leaving the kids with Hasben at home. This has got to be the toughest bushwalking I have ever experienced. Not suitable for my 4 year old son, nor his 1 year old brother!

So this sisterly trip started at 7.30am and it took us an hour to reach the top. My stamina was really bad, I was panting the whole way up.

Parked our car at Tabletop Drive, and was so enthusiastic:


The climb was really steep, even from the very beginning of the track:


About half an hour of hiking, I initially thought we were nearly there:


The awesome view on top of the crest:


Apparently, we only just made it over this 'little' hill:


This is the foot of the actual Tabletop Mountain (long way to go!):


We had to climb over more rocks before finally reaching the top. Had a view of the giant Australian flag at Picnic Point and the highway up Toowoomba Range:



The awesome views of the Great Dividing Range:



We were not as enthusiastic to start our journey down, scary path ahead!


Anyways, good workout girls! ;p

Lavender at Laurel Bank Park, Toowoomba.

Date: 13 August 2015

Laurel Bank Park is one of my favourite places for evening walks. Just noticed there was a little area behind the BBQ shelters that I have never explored before. Thanks to Hana who shared a picture of her mom with lavenders, I thought Lil Sis would enjoy it too. We visited the park in the late evening, so the sun was nearly setting.



There was also a little fountain with ducks which Kimi enjoyed the most, and a little bridge - great for photoshoots.



And here is Hasben, posing happily (^u^) :

Ravensbourne National Park, Qld.

Date: 9th August 2015

Lil sis is hear for a month and she is itching to get out of the house. Babysitting the nephews must have drained out all of her energy. So her first trip was a picnic up Ravensbourne NP, about an hour drive from Toowoomba..



We spent the evening just enjoying the beautiful mountain view of the Great Dividing Range, while the sun sets slowly behind us.


An absolutely perfect weather for a picnic and some family time ;)
