    SE Qld - Places to Shoot

    Share your favourite places to shoot in SE Qld.

    Please provide a subject title ie Macro, Birds etc. If these roughly line up with the titles of the Members Photo share areas it will make life easier for members. Remember this information will probably be used by visiting inter state members and even those from overseas. For some subjects ie Landscapes, a sample photo might be a good idea.

    To help others not familiar with your favourite place also provide a link to a website if available or a link to a Google Map.

    To start the ball rolling......

    Macro
    Most of these places have a wide variety of insect life and flora that constantly changes throughout the year.
    Roma St Parklands

    Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens

    Brisbane City Botanical Gardens

    Indigiscapes

    Karawatha Forest

    A few of my favourite haunts would be:

    Nudgee Beach
    Especially at low tide when you can get out amongst the mangroves, but make sure you dip yourself in Aeroguard first, the mozzies are fierce

    Shorncliffe
    The pier is certainly very photographic, but don't forget to explore the shoreline around the headland to the south too.

    Wellingtoin point
    It's on the other side of the creek for me, but often well worth the trip.

    Bartleys lookout
    Looking southwest over the city makes it a great spot for a city sunrise.

    Cityscape:

    Brisbane:

    Bartleys lookout for me also, great for storms, sunsets and sunrises reflecting on the buildings. Watch the skyline rise from there!

    Bicentennial Bikeway, especially the part along and under the Riverside Expressway.

    CBD: Anywhere, Queen St Mall, Adelaide St, Eagle St Pier, up Brisbane City Hall...I always find something to take photos of in the CBD.

    Pacific Motorway, M1Light trails on overpasses such as the Victoria Bridge, Vulture St, Watland St.

    The ValleyI haven't taken many photos yet but I plan too this year.

    Gold Coast:

    Anywhere along the beach, there is always a good skyline and landscape shot.

    Gold Coast Lookouts:

    The Spit, George St - Burleigh Heads, Burleigh Heads National Park, Elephant Rock - Currumbin, lookout at the south of Kirra Beach, Giants Causeway - Fingal Heads, Terranora Rd - Terranora, South Nobby - Miami, parklands out the front of GC City Council - Bundall, around Guanaba Rd - Mt Tamborine and there is also St Bernards Pub nearby which has a good view and then Q1 also.
    CC greatly appreciated

    Hi here is an interesting spot which I stumbled upon about 10 days ago....

    SPRING BLUFF STATION. (its a Railway station - track is still in regular use) beautifully renovated with a fantastic queenslander cottage/house which is a coffee shop. roughly 1hr 10 mins - 1hr 30 mins from Brisbane Northside (depending heavily on traffic).

    While I know it's nowhere near Brisbane, for those adventurous types, Lake Nuga Nuga. It's past Roma and Injune, there are absolutely no facilities there and if you're not good with nature avoid it. But it's fantastic for landscapes, bird and wildlife photography.

    There are hundreds of dead trees in the water, and around Easter hols, the water is covered in purple and white water lillies. Lots of whistling kites.

    Landscape,
    On the way to kennalworth (spelling, outside of malaney) there is a dirt track that goes up a hill (mountain) to an old handgliding site, great for wide-angle shots, pana shots etc.
    Forest,wildlife,macro
    Mt Glorious up at Miala or there abouts, great little cafe that alot of the motorcycle people use (abit exy on the prices though). Just take water and food with you,,, long walk with kids to .
    Seascapes,
    Sunshine coast up near noosa heads, i think its still called devils lookout, great for sunrise-sunset etc.

    One of the best times of year to come out here for this is during the Toowoomba Carnival Of Flowers (this year 17 - 26 September). The gardens are in full bloom as is the rest of Toowoomba's parks, gardens and select private residences.
    Attitude is everything!
