I am house sitting for two weeks at Kyneton, a small town half way between Melbourne and Bendigo. It is an old town with lots of interesting architecture.

September 2016, Queensland

I am house sitting at Warwick, southern Queensland. I have a staffy dog and 3 chooks to look after. Warwick was one of the first settled areas in Queensland and has some nice historic buildings.

This house was built in 1890. It is now a B&B.

Once the convent, now a B&B.

Typical Queensland architecture - built for hot summers.
