Photographer's Note

The Darling River starts in Queensland and flows through the west of New South Wales draining much of southern Queensland and most of NSW west of the mountains.rnIn a time of drought you would wonder why there is water in the river - that is due to there being a weir just around that corner to provide water for the town of Bourke. rnThe trees along the river banks are River Red Gums with extremely hard and durable timber. It used to be popular for building shearing shed and bridges but these days they can't be harvested for the good of the rivers. Recycled timber is popular. Our dining table is made from timber from an old shearing shed. The timber is very dense and heavy and is a beautiful red.rnPer usual view the larger version for better detail.
