Childers Queensland

I drove to Childers, where I am  now staying with Colin and Ginger amidst a garden full of exciting plants and flowers, and the birds sing me awake in the morning.

The outskirts of Childers are mostly 5 acre blocks…and small farms growing cirus, subtropical fruits, stone fruits..peaches and nectarines, vegetables and also sugar cane as well as grazing cattle.
