Weekend at 'Rusty Roo' - Queensland
  • About this album
  • On the invite of an artist friend, we spent 3 nights at this idyllic property that overlooks the Wyvenhoe Dam that supplies Brisbane's water supply. Due to the drought, most of the area was dry and we were able to walk on the bottom of the dam!
