the brolgas at Nelia ...

Recently we had Townsville artist Sue Tilley working on a Public Art Project - Life is Art in the tiny township of Nelia, North West Queensland.

Sue has created a 'Brolga Family' out of found parts and they are now proud new residents of Nelia.

Happy Family

Unfortunately due to homeschooling I couldn't attend the opening day, but wanted to share pictures of these great new additions to the town.  We drove past the other day for the first time ... and I managed to convince my husband to stop the car for 30 seconds while I dashed out and took some pics.

... so the next time you're driving on the Flinders Highway ... don't forget to pull in at Nelia and meet the locals!
