A lovely old Queenslander

Here are a few images of the beautiful old Queenslander B&B I was lucky enough to stay in whilst on holiday. There is something quite romantic about the shaded verandahs and cool dark interiors of these typical late 19th century, early 20th century family homes, built to provide relief and protection from the long, hot Queensland summers. And a perfect place to plop on the couch (under the air-con) with a trashy magazine and a glass of something refreshing!


  1. Beautiful! I love Queenslanders.

  2. Thanks Thea - I fell in love with these beautiful old buildings - so different from typical Victorian architecture, almost like visiting another country minus the expensive airfare!
