From almost atop the mountain on Palm Island, looking northwest. Queensland, Australia. Two boys at the top of the mountain on Palm Island, near Townsville. At the end of a four wheel drive track. They are looking northwest over the township and the neighbouring islands towards Minchinbrook Island in the far distance. Spectacular scenery! February 2017.
