Kooroomba Vineyard & Lavender Farm

Last weekend, Michael & I drove out west to Kooroomba Vineyard & Lavender Farm. We have been planning to visit there for about 12 months.

The drive out provided a stark reminder of the affects of the current lack of rainfall we have been experiencing over the last 6 months. Everything is so dry in south-east QLD due to missing our traditional wet season earlier this year.



Luckily the dams are still relatively full so the farmers can use water for their crops or, in this case, their lavender and vines.



Only in Australia, can you go to a winery with a stunning mountain backdrop and see Kangaroos and Wallabies amongst the vineyards.

This one is a Whiptail Wallaby (he/she has a white stripe on the face).




These ones are Eastern Grey Kangaroos

This one is carrying a joey in her pouch.

I love the photos of the wallaby amongst the vineyards - delightful. We have extended family with a lavender farm in Victoria.

I hate to say it, but the farmers don't know what's hit them yet - I think we are in for another extremely dry summer or two.

That said, this is a beautiful location and the photo of the wallaby in the crop rows with that majestic mountain range behind it is wonderful, as are all the others!

Oh, look at that little baby!!!
Everything does look really dry, Liz, but it sure did not take away from the beauty of these photographs. I am glad that the farmers still have enough water for their crops, and I hope you get some relief from this drought soon. xo.
