Tropical Cyclone Linda forms, heads towards Queensland coast


The BOM said the cyclone would generate "large waves and dangerous surf conditions" on exposed southern Queensland beaches.

A tropical low moving towards Queensland's south-east develops into a category one tropical cyclone, which is expected to generate large waves, dangerous surf conditions and higher tides.

With the regional forest agreements set to be renewed, conservationists say ancient forests are being destroyed while the timber industry says its operating under strict codes. It's the return of the forest wars. ...


Comment on Facebook

Good, battle on. I wouldn't mind seeing the self absorbed Greens going back to their roots and get chained up around a few old forest trunks again. True earth warriors they were. That would get their lagging membership fired up again.

Thank you Guardian Australia for this video. The deforestation taking place in Australia is shameful. Very disappointed in our governments.

Hope we can get a more sustainable approach to harvesting our forests. Last few decades way too much of our wonderful timber has gone toow value added uses like wood chips etc

"You must believe you can. You must find the place inside yourself where anything is possible. It starts with a dream. Add confidence, and it becomes a belief. Add commitment, and it becomes a goal in sight. Add action, and it becomes a part of your life. Add determination and time, and your dream becomes a reality. When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, Never Give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."

Ahoy there, Im coming up for a look! 🐳

Photo: in Australias Coral Coast


Comment on Facebook snapped this astonishing photo of a whale shark at Coral Bay in Australia's Coral Coast, which plays host to a migratory population of these gentle giants. The Ningaloo Reef whale shark season kicks off around now and runs roughly until August (or however long the whale sharks fancy hanging around for!), so if you're heading to Western Australia, be sure to add a whale shark swim to your bucket list. Photo:

" Were going to need a bigger boat"

It’s a whale shark, totally harmless - but big!

Swam there with those fishes in 2003 and also manta rays: UNFORGETTABLE experiences!

A very good reason to come back to Australia soon ❤️

Susan, Jon, this is where we’re headed in two weeks 😎

I sooooooooo badly want to go swimming with whale sharks they are gorgeous

So cute big head whale shark and beautiful yacht , nice photography !

That is some photograph 10 out of 10

Absolutely out of this WORLD😊

It's just as curious as we are! I'm sure no one was in danger of this gentle giant ❤️

Enjoy the ocean while it lasts Australians, you dont seem to keen on trying to keep it alive for much longer anyway.

What a beautiful whale shark, just watched a awesome Blue Planet 2 show where they filmed them giving birth off of Darwin Island in the Galapagos.

That must have been terrifying to photo, or are my perspectives all wrong and the whale is in fact quite far away? Imagine if the thing just decided Oooh human let's put that in my mouth :D

Big critters can’t come into island reefs tho... would be much scarier diving off K.I. Xx that whale shark is not a biter either. Xx

Two things. The photo is fake and it is a shark, a whale shark to be precise. Fake, fake, fake.

See you soon Australia!! I hope my visa gets approved!! haha

41 feet of shark and a nice little 47,000 lbs way cool.. that make interesting lap doggie

This is amazing and terrifying at the same time.

I'm hoping that photo's not to scale, and that it's a close up on the Shark :)

Wow for a second I thought it was photoshopped. Nature is absolutely amazing!!

Going, going, gone! 👋🏻

After 10 years of serving one of the most famous desserts in Australia, Quay Restaurant is saying farewell to the Snow Egg.


Comment on Facebook

Peter Gilmore has created a new flavour for the final snow egg: custard apple & Mangosteen fool, pear granita & custard apple ice cream. Diners will have three weeks to experience the snow egg and Quay Restaurant in its current form before the doors temporarily close on Sunday 1st of April. Photo: Quay Restaurant

“The snow egg has graced our menu for over a decade, but this is a time of change and I want to be looking forward. It was a tough decision but removing it gives me the opportunity to grow and evolve the menu to give guests a new dining experience” says Executive Chef Peter Gilmore. Photo: Quay Restaurant

Over the course of its 10-year lifespan, over half a million-snow eggs served and over 20 flavour changes, Quay Restaurant will farewell the iconic Snow Egg when the restaurant pauses service for a three-month renovation on April 1st, 2018. Photo: Quay Restaurant

Sam Savage look Sam they can't do that - it was the best pud ever and dad and I loved it!! I feel very lucky to have eaten that pud in that amazing place with the stunning view. Thank you Sam!! Xxxxxxx

The most amazing dessert ever !

Rustom Manecksha so glad we got to try the Snow Egg!

We loved it so much

Charles Williamson better get to SYD before the 1st of April if you ever want to try the Snow egg 🙈

Tara u better get over there b4 it’s gone 😜

Yazmin Islam and Trai Moorthy glad we got to try it before it is gone!

Yummy and beautiful desserts !

Just curious why restaurants/chefs like to concoct a new dessert and get rid of one that was their specialty for so long. You could have a new one but keep the old on the menu too. This often happens when you go a place because of their specialty only to find something different has replaced it

How much does it cost? - if I am asking that guess I can't afford to eat there 😏

Ashleigh Edwards Courtney JepsonJepson We can always say we have had one thanks to old mate Jj

Schau mal, Sixtus Fadler, in dieses ikonische Resto wollte ich mit Euch zum Essen gehen-nicht nur wegen der Aussicht, sondern wegen solcher endgeiler Frickeleien... Hammer, oder?

Ann-maree Chesters can’t believe I’ve never had this & now it’s going 😔

I didn't think it was great

Briony Glastonbury oh my god!!! no!! my favorite dessert

Tom Garden good they were yuck

I remember eating here 1200 dinner and first 3 dishes I sent back - over priced hyped up shitte

Oh dear Lachlan Flynn and Michelle Marie hurry up and book! It's the only reason I got the voucher for you...

.....and I never tried.

Sorry I missed this.

Comment on Facebook

Koala Krusader recently captured this adorable koala joey as it was being transported to its mother at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Destination Gold Coast. The wildlife sanctuary in Visit Queensland, Australia is home to more than 50 koalas, but it's not just about the resident koalas here - it runs an onsite wildlife hospital which treats over 250 koalas every year, brought in by the local community. Photo: Koala Krusader

Being doting its eyes look so big on that precious tiny face It has to be the most dearest little joey ever. I can just feel hugging and cuddleing it Just loveit❤️❤️

wow thanks for sharing i have never seen one up close let alone a baby one thanks

Probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life 🐨💕

Awwwwww. So very cute. I wish that I lived in Australia and could work as a care giver for animals in need.

Cuddles with as he was then baby Slater at Currumbin

Looking fwd in seeing you this November!

Aww, just want to hold one, so cute

I will be in Australia Thursday, my goal is to hold a Koala. ❤️

A quoka photo bombing my daughter ❤️😁

This is really a cute animal. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for that. Love its foot especially.

Lisa Vasquez my heart just exploded looking at this baby!!! 😩😻😻😻🐨

I can't even handle the cuteness 😍🐨😍🐨

See it Holding on to it's little foot....How cute..

I've seen comments on other pages about something you call drop bears. Is that a thing you call Koalas or is that another animal?

I am sorry if this sounds negative - but I have to say it. Dear Something needs to be done on the Pacific Highway near Port Macquarie, about within 10 km south of the Oxley highway, north going side, before roundabout (near BP garage). There's a koala sanctuary there. For several weeks now I've seen koalas killed. It's utterly sickening and horrible. You never see it in news, it's cleaned up quick unlike other animals. Our governments and us the people need to be ashamed. Why people think we can just keep stealing their habitat and expanding over what they need to survive, is beyond me. The ignorance to the plight of animals that get killed on our roads by governments mainly, but people also, makes me sick.

Yes drop bears are a joke,at the expense of the koala.They are not cuddly they have claws like a wild cat. Will use you as a tree and a bit like a rabbit hard pinch

Leesa Apps This was taken at CWS!! It’s now our mission on Wednesday to find it!! Haha

Sooooo look at that little face.....x

We've been looking for one of these guys in the wild ❤❤

Omg how cute , wish I could have one ...

Thank you for this cuteness overload!!!

Hope Mother Koala is close by..too young to be apart long. thanks for the cute pic. Love it.

After spending 3 weeks in Australia 🇦🇺, this is the best country in the world 🌎 for Everything!!!❤️❤️

Hey friend can you tell me more famous place there to visit I love to travel there again👌👌

Gosh how many beautiful places are there?!!!😁 wanna go there so bad!!

Sailed there last year it was wonderful.

Could you please go back to the non-video format? I like being able to take my time studying the pictures. I'm dating someone from over there and it was a tradition for us to go through the pics. We've been doing it less since you switched to this format. Even just including a link to the pictures in the album as singular ones would be helpful. Cheers

Australia , proud to be a citizen!! only he lives there underestand the meaning of down under!!!

Beautiful country and awesome people. Enjoyed my visit there 👍

Best country in the world! 😍😍😍

I love your posts and would prefer to go back to the photos instead of the video. Photos are more enjoyable and easy to share.

So many of these beautiful scenes are of our amazing wildlife and our beautiful natural landscapes .... our politicians need to realise this and stop clearing land and allowing our native animals to be killed 😢

Always beautiful Australia!! Love it❤️

Our country is so beautiful 😃

Awesome! <3

Beautiful country

Some amazing sunsets ☺

Holy mackerel - we've never seen Barron Falls looking quite like this! 💦

Video: @sara.cioni_ (via IG) in Explore Tropical North Queensland


Comment on Facebook

Record rainfall in Explore Tropical North Queensland has resulted in a formidable torrent of water raging over the famous falls in Kuranda, near Cairns. It's currently the wet season in this part of Visit Queensland, Australia so excess rainfall isn't unusual, but to see Barron Falls flowing as they are in this photo is quite an extraordinary sight. Have your camera at the ready! Photo: @_sarahlatham (via IG)

Was there on Sunday, so lucky to have this in our back yard in NQ.... I live in cairns and had approx 200-300 ml where I am. There are a lot of magical places to see up here, especially in the wet season.....

omg this brings back wonderful memories. we went to oz for our honeymoon 16 years ago and took the Karunda train with a stop at baron falls. we were lucky as it was middle of Feb & they had had a week of heavy rain the previous week - so this is what the falls looked like when we were there 😁

Wow that’s amazing. Rob when we were there it was so different , hardly a waterfall. We need to go in the wet season next time

This is awesome......wish it had been this spectacular back in 2016....maybe 2019 will be the year ! Love this part of Australia! 😍😍😍

Wow we’ve been here a few times and never seen so much water, looks very impressive though👍

Awww I miss this!!! I used to live in Kuranda. Such a beautiful place!!!!!

How beautiful..i went there last year!

Spectacular and love the roar of the water

It's a raging torrent of water in your pictures . . .Doesn't look anything like the falls we saw when we were there !

Didnt know we had this in Australia. I do not really need to go to Himalayas now to see this. Love our great country anf nature

I've been there, but it was nothing like this then! I seem to remember we travelled there on the heritage train, and all got off to take photos of the falls before continuing on. Wow!

Beautiful! Wish I had time to see it. Will be in Melborne, Sydney & Port Macquarie next week. Can't wait!

Back up in May hope it’s still looking great, just luv NQld😃

Doesn't look the way when we were there.. :-o

Omg!!! 😍😍 Hopefully it will stay like this until we get there !!!! Mike Mills

I love Barron Falls! I've been lucky enough to visit it twice.

Yes about fifteen years ago they went from a mere trickle to a torrent virtually overnight.

Waterfalls and Australia, two of my favorite things!

Can’t believe we saw this a week ago and it was sooo different.

Wow! So Powerful! It was a small stream waterfall when i saw it years ago. Now you know how the gorge was carved out! Beautiful!

We need to go back & catch this falls at full speed!!

What a torrent of beauty!! Have been here but this is spectacular!

Wow 😮 thank you 🙏 for sharing your photos have a great day.
