humpback whale watching, Queensland

Mooloolaba, Queensland

The mountain formations in this part of Australia are very distinctive, with a pronounced triangular shape. If I am not mistaken, I believe they form part of the Glasshouse Mountains.

    That peak does look like one of the Glasshouse Mountain range. It seems very familiar to me from trips I have taken to Qld in the distant past. They are spectacular.

    Awww, cute little baby calf with its Mum. He/she is the small splash in the bottom pic, right?
    Nice photos!
