|cane sugar burning off in the fields|
You drive through lots of sugar cane fields on the way, and they were doing the burning off in some of the fields that day. As you drive past the sugar mill, you can see the clear white smoke coming out of the stacks, and smell the odd sweet scent of it.
|the smoke is actually pure white; and mostly steam|

And there was dinner! Delicious food prepared by a local restaurant - Mavis' Kitchen who also run the café attached to the Gallery.
|we had beef|
Everyone at our table had pre-ordered the fish dish so we both had beef. There were a number of lovely ladies at our table, one of them a Gallery guide, another Margaret.

The Gallery really is a must if you are ever in the area. It is such a beautiful region of Australia. I know I have mentioned this place a few times but I am just so enamoured of it. I'm sure anyone who visits would also love it.
