What a view !

Just look at this for a view ! It`s fabulous don`t you think ? So where in the world do you think our travelling bands are ? [ click on the pic to enlarge ] Well , to give you a few clues - you can stop at this lovely old restaurant for a bite to eat, it is called the St Bernards Hotel located on the edge of an ancient volcanic escarpment, it commands wonderful views of the Tamborine valley , this area boasts rain forest walks- nine national parks almost encircle the mountain escarpment . Walks starting from the hotel include five different water falls !
The hotel is an old establishment for this area and was moved to its present location in 1888 , it started a program of restoration and refurbishment in 2004 after being left for nearly thirty years in a state of decay-so far the owners have spent nearly £ 1 million pounds on it !
And here is the hotel mascot-his name is Leo ! So win yourself an MND wristband and guess the location !

Beautiful place with a fantastic view! WOW! I looked it up, but not sure where it is, really - Mt. Tamborine, Queensland?
What a pretty dog! Is he minus a front leg?
How are you, anyway? How's Andrew doing?
I hope all is well or on the way!

Hi Sharon ! I think the dog has all his legs intact ? its just the way he`s sitting ! Andrew looked better tonight-still taking antibiotics for a throat infection , thank you for asking x
Queensland is correct -anyone have any ideas of the identity of the female blogger who sent the photo`s in ?
