Kilcowera Station

If you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track for a holiday then think about heading to Kilcowera Station which is located along the Darling Track between Hungerford and Thargomindah, Qld.

It is a 120,000 acres cattle station owned and operated by Greg and Toni Sherwin (you couldn’t ask for nicer hosts).  We camped beside the Cardenyabba lagoon for 10 stunning nights (we had only planned to stay for 4 nights).

There are plenty of things to see and explore on the property which also has accommodation in the shearer’s quarters.

There is a lot of bird life to be found on Kilcowera Station.  We spotted and photographed quite a few as you can see below:

What is a cattle station without cows??

During periods of heavy rainfall Kilcowera becomes home to some ancient shrimps!

To expand our photography and be able to shoot from a different perspective, Firefly Photos acquired a Phantom 4 drone.  After a bit of practice and a steep learning curve we are beginning to produce some quality images.

The McClymonts @ Rooty Hills RSL 29/07/16

The McClymonts performed at Rooty Hills last month as part of their 10 years of hits tour.  It was a great night of music which the the crowd loved.  This particular concert was sold out so be quick if you want to catch one of the remaining gigs on the tour.  You can find out details of the rest of the tour on The McClymonts Website.

I photographed the gig on behalf of Amnplify.

Prinnie Stevens + Maysa Tippens @ The Basement 09/06/16

Prinnie Stevens performing during the Divas Series 2 at the Basement 9th June, 2016.  Prinnie covered songs by Diana Ross, Alicia Keys and Chaka.  She certainly has the perfect voice for it and did them justice! Prinnie was a contestant on the Voice in season 1.  Look out for future shows.

 

Prinnie was supported by the very talented 18 year old Maysa Tippins and she also has a big musical career ahead of her.
