Mount Coot-tha Forest (Place of Honey)

Today we ventured  to the soul of Brisbane... Mt Coot-tha  which is aboriginal for Place of Honey. We go there often- it makes me feel connected. 

But my absolute favourite time to go is during heavy downfalls when all the crowds run away  to bunker down in their dry houses. It is with this torrential rain that  the forest comes alive with powerful waterfalls- it transforms. I have lived here most of my life and really only witnessed this for the first time last Christmas Day, just before the floods.

Today, the weather was sunny and the people  flocked in numbers I hadn't seen in a while.

What a great forest.....

What a great tree.....

Remember it is International Year of the Forest- treat them kindly.
