Cape Hillsborough Collection

Cape Hillsborough National Park

Cape Hillsborough - View from the lookout

A new collection of tile pendants can now be viewed in the Photographic Jewellery page. Cape Hillsborough, a seaside location north of Mackay, is the inspiration for most of the tiles in this group. Cape Hillsborough is a magical place, a little ‘off the beaten track’ where kangaroos and wallabies graze on grasses near the small nature resort or gather on the beach at dawn or dusk. The resort is surrounded by National Park which features Melaleuca woodlands, mangroves, open eucalypt forests and vine thickets. The walks within these forests have an interesting mix of plant and animal life as well as Aboriginal middens which are of cultural significance to the Juipera people. Many of the photographs in this collection were taken along the walking tracks within this National Park.
