This may look like a postcard, but it's just your standard morning sight in Cape Hillsborough 🌅

Video: Matt Raimondo Studio in Visit Queensland, Australia


Comment on Facebook

Matt Raimondo Studio recently captured this gorgeous video of Cape Hillsborough's resident wallabies and kangaroos foraging on the sand at dawn, which is the best time of day to spot them. If you're looking to get up close to these iconic Australian animals, Cape Hillsborough in Visit Mackay, Queensland, Australia is a must-visit. It's the perfect place to capture a beautiful photo of the kangaroos and wallabies with a stunning sunrise backdrop. Photo: Matt Raimondo Studio

Meet the locals of Cape Hillsborough in the Visit Mackay, Queensland, Australia region of Visit Queensland, Australia. This gorgeous spot is just a 40-minute drive from Mackay. If you're planning a visit we'd recommend staying overnight at Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park. That way, you can roll out of bed and wander straight down to the beach to see the kangaroos and wallabies at sunrise. Photo: Matt Raimondo Studio

many years ago i was taking pics on my video recorder of the beautiful scenery at Cape Hillsborough, when slowly and quietly a few wallabies and kangaroos came towards me sat and watched me take pics. i started to speak to them. How are you, nice day lol so friendly. they were very interested in what i was doing. it was just a lovely moment i wont forget.

My favourite animal in the whole world 😍😍😍

Reminds me of the morning I wake up on Kangaroo Island. We slept outside. I saw 30 kangeroos or more with a beautiful sunrise. wow moment at cape hillsborough...

Been there last year stayed at the camp site went down every in morn to meet the kangaroos lovely place x

To much irresponsible people that wants to take selfie pictures with there smart phones instead of letting them safely and enjoy the moment. Than they are suprised that there getting bitten by these cute but still wild animals.

The city of Mackay and Eungella Rainforest nearby ( to see platypus) are worth a visit if you are going to Cape Hillsborough.

Haha yes and Australians don't appreciate these wonderful animals enough in my opinion ..they get pushed out to make room for urban sprawl .😔

More wildlife corridors where humans are taking over!! Yes we do ALL need to learn to live together and share! 🙂

*sigh*...we were there 2yrs ago! advised tae get on the beach by 6am, then the roos came and lounged about the caravan park next to the o the most wonderful days i've ever experienced! x

I love Cape Hillsborough.

Been there last year. Just to let you know how it really looks like.

Just looking at booking somewhere to stay around the Mackay (ish) area... I think we may have found the place <3

Kangaroos are softer fur than Koalas

Lyz Rd le fameux spot où l'on s'attendait à voir plein de kangourous :)

Stayed there , kangaroos everywhere

Gorgeous dawn , and so cute kangaroos !

They are true been there and loved it

Been there it was beautiful..

Marilyn Shorter I am getting extremely jealous....What an amazing place you have there.

I would sit with them and watch that lovely sunrise!!

So awesome!! My favorite is 🐨 koalas😍 cant wait!

China’s recycling ban hits Adelaide – will your council rates go up to save it from landfill, or could the world’s trash become our state’s treasure? Tonight 6.30.



Comment on Facebook

This will effect councils Across the board. Yes Bendigo rates will go up as per 2018/2019 budget shows. Bendigo will face a worse problem in the coming yrs. As our land fill (tip) closes in aprox 2022. But i am sure some ex councillors yrs ago, starting a plan to fix this problem. Problem is our coucil is not good with the truth or transpancy. So we will just sit back and pay out money and see which councillors in a few yrs are rubbing their grubby hands together with $$$ in their eyes

Australia loves the Chinese money but not their friendship

Catch Up: A life-saving cancer treatment – finally coming to Adelaide, but too late for some. Patrick Major reports.




Comment on Facebook

My husband was turned down last year for funding for proton therapy for brain cancer. I contacted several USA clinics and my husband was approved for treatment. We used a portion of his super, savings, raised money and left for treatment on November 3rd 2017 and returned January 17th. An epic journey for us and 2 young children. He has a scan on May 7th. We were originally advised that the proton machine would be in adelaide by 2020, which gave me hope incase my husband needed it again. Having to wait another 2 years could be the difference between life and death for him. We definitely couldn't fund another trip. Adelaide needs this machine now, not in 2022.

We are desperately seeking help for a young man whom has dedicated 17 years of his life to the ADF and also suffering with Chordoma, 2 young children , 2 major back surgeries, pop locks holding his shoulder in place , pain 24/7 living on multi lethal pain killing drugs and anti depressants, suffering PTSD and grieving for his father whom past away on Good Friday . This boy has given his life to his country and gone beyond the call of duty , he / we need help now and no one is listening. Help needed urgently!!!

Where is the humanity in the Government!! fund this child for gods sake.

Too late for my 24 year old son. Died last year from Lymphoma

Carol Coombs you are an inspiration, wow that time has gone fast! Love you long time xx

Love you too Mic. 😚😚

I disagree with what the guy was saying. It is not possible to take out of the equation an amount for savings first. First you take out all the bills and then your left with an amount of money. You then and only then can divide the amount left over into spend and save. By doing what the guy said by taking the amount out for savings first then working the rest out is not possible at all. If you take out too much for savings first then you may be left with not enuf to cover the bills. Hence why you always take out the money for bills first and see what’s left over. That’s how I’ve always done it myself and will continue for as long as needed. Just goes to show you cant believe what your told some times. My way is fool proof.

Lest We Forget. ...

Lest We Forget.

Around Australia today, Anzac Day services are being held at dawn to remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in war and in service for their country. The spirit of Anzac and its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice continue to live on and have become an important part of our national identity. Hundreds of services and marches are held around the country throughout the day today including the National Ceremony held at the Australian War Memorial in Visit Canberra. If you’re heading to Canberra sometime, allow a few hours to visit the Memorial; it’s open 364 days and entry is via gold coin donation.

Once when I was in OZ, I was talking to some other Americans about going to see Fort Scratchley and a guy said "Australia has an army?" Being an American veteran, I said "Please don't say that in public. Everywhere we've been, they were with us and I can't in good conscience protect you from the mess you will find yourself in." Thank you for your service around the world.

My Great Uncle. After surviving Gallipoli he died at Moquet Farm France 8th August 1916 aged 21. Lest We Forget.

Been there last year, beautiful place, just like we have here at Ypres Belgium, the Menin Gate.

We visited the Australian War Memorial in Dec 2016, it was very moving.

Visited this memorial a few days ago. Today is Anzac day, April 25.

At the going down of the sun, we will remember them. In memory of my grandfather Os Turnbull who fought at Gallipoli and in France. He came back with what is now known as PTSD - but sadly was never treated because nobody knew what to do........

Thank you Boys, we will notforget

Thinking of my Aussie friends as they commerate Anzac Day

Thank you to all the vets for your service and sacrifice, god bless!!

To our NZ neighbours and comrades across the ditch - Lest We Forget. 😓

In Memory of my Uncle Henry Anthony Jowett Flying Officer RAAF WW2 who died at the age of 27 The Uncle I never got to meet as he died so young. Lest we forget these brave soldiers who gave their lives for our peace

استرالیا همیشه احمق بوده و خواهد ماند. تاریخ انگلیس شوم، قتل و کشتار در سراسر جهان است. اشتباه که دوباره نه صد باره میخواهد تکرار کند. اینبار همرای من و دگر مهاجرین میکند.

One of my best memories of any trip I have taken is having the honor to attend a pre-dawn ceremony, then the Brisbane parade, of ANZAC Day 2016. I dearly want to return Down Under and experience it again some day.

We just came back from ANZAC dawn service in San Diego USS Midway. We go there every year since we've been living in CA. Beautify service and very moving. Lest We Forget

yes..early here..but ANZAC day in AU and NZ..we remember in the U.S...

When I was growing up in Brisbane in the 70s and 80s, I never saw or heard mention of poppies, but they are all over war memorials today. I know their origin from the battlefields of France, but when were they introduced into ANZAC celebrations?

Learned this poem 50 years ago as a schoolgirl in Perth. Powerful. Never forget.

I have so many relatives who served in the services both women and men. My grandfather at the Western Front, my dad over the skies of Europe. To them I thank you. To all those that continue to serve this country I thank you

We visited the one in Melbourne too ...very nice...loved the flame always lit...

Thank You All For Your Service, Rest In Peace !!!

From the botton of my heart I send condolences and many blessings to all . Rest in Peace.

ANZAC Day much meaning and importance for the two Antipodean countries. No greater sacrifice

We're all Australians now. . Australia takes her pen In hand, To write a line to you, To let you fellows understand, How proud we are of you. . From shearing shed and cattle run, From Broome to Hobson’s Bay, Each native-born Australian son, Stands straighter up today. . The man who used to ‘hump his drum’ on far-out Queensland runs, Is fighting side by side with some, Tasmanian farmer’s sons. . The fisher-boys dropped sail and oar to grimly stand the test, Along that storm-swept Turkish shore with miners from the West. . The old state jealousies of yore, Are dead as Pharaoh’s sow, We’re not State children any more, We’re all Australians now!. . Our six-starred flag that used to fly, Half-shyly to the breeze, Unknown where older nations ply, Their trade on foreign seas. . Flies out to meet the morning blue, With vict’ry at the prow, For that’s the flag the Sydney flew, The wide seas know it now!. . The mettle that a race can show, Is proved with shot and steel, And now we know what nations know, And feel what nations feel. . The honoured graves beneath the crest, Of Gaba Tepe hill, May hold our bravest and our best, But we have brave men still. . With all our petty quarrels done, Dissentions overthrown, We have, through what you boys have done, A history of our own. . Our old world diff’rences are dead, Like weeds beneath the plough, For English, Scot, and Irish-bred, They’re all Australians now!. . So now we’ll toast the Third Brigade, That led Australia’s van, For never shall their glory fade, In minds Australian. . Fight on, fight on, unflinchingly, Till right and justice reign. Fight on, fight on, till victory, Shall send you home again. . And with Australia’s flag shall fly, A spray of wattle bough, To symbolize our unity, We’re all Australians now. . A B (Banjo) Paterson.

Respect, Remembrance and thanks
