Sugar mill at Broadwater

 on 


On our way back from Queensland we were passing a little town called Broadwater, which is situated on the Richmond River south of Ballina. This is sugar cane country and the domineering feature of the landscape are the chimneys of the sugar mill. The mill started crushing sugar cane in 1881.

I have noticed that at entry point to the town it looks like the surrounding bush is equipped with these two smoking chimneys and that would make a better photo than the photograph of the mill itself. Just a little ECO visual humour.
