We decided to invest in the lunch at the boat club overlooking the sea. It had just reopened the day before following renovations and repairs thanks to cyclone Marcia back in February. Lunch was very nice indeed. We spent the afternoon cruising around the area and returned to the van late in the afternoon. When Kerry returned home we met our housemates for the next week and a half, smidge the chihuahua, and mini the cat. Smidge at Yeppoon The next week was taken up with enjoying the seaview, walking on the beach, and a trip to Great Keppel Island on the catamaran Funtastic, and of course, our house sit duties. The trip to GKI was a bit rough on the way over, Julia was struggling and did not enjoy the yummy morning tea. We stopped at Middle Island for the morning tea and a snorkel. This was in a nice little cove with coral adjoining a peninsula. Jim enjoyed it until he was heading back to the boat when he saw a large sea snake and put both Kieran Perkins and Michael Klim to shame in his sprint to the boat.

Our flagship program; Tidy Towns aims to recognise and reward work occurring in towns across Queensland. The Queensland Tidy Towns program has been adjusted to an accreditation program, to better reflect the comprehensive approach that has been a part of the Tidy Towns ethos for many years. The accreditation rating provides participating towns with a 1 — 5 star rating, based on their performance in key focus areas; Community Action, Resource Recovery, Waste Management, Litter, Environmental Innovation and Protection, Heritage and Culture, Energy Efficiency and Water Conservation.

For an example of an ‘Open’ EEI task sheet, click here. Photovoltaic power generation employs solar panels comprising a number of cells containing a photovoltaic material. The Australian Government provides incentives for the use of PVs for both domestic and industrial use you can save money, and save the environment. Solar photovoltaics generates electricity in more than countries and, while yet comprising a tiny fraction of the GW total global power-generating capacity from all sources, is the fastest growing power-generation technology in the world.
Between and , grid-connected PV capacity increased at an annual average rate of 60 percent, to some 21 GW. A good EEI would be to measure current as a function of the angle of incidence of sunlight all within a short period of time eg 30 minutes ; measure current when collector is perpendicular to rays during the day how should that go? But maybe you’ll need to consider more than current; perhaps the power output is more important. If so, you could put a load on the circuit resistor and measure V and I.
In the method shown below, Moreton Bay College students are measuring the effect of angle on the flow rate hence power output of a electrical water pump. This was Year Energy output of a solar panel II You could also investigate the effect of shade on the output of a panel. In this photo, students are using layers 1, 2, 3 etc of shade cloth.
It would also be interesting to see the effect of light of different wavelength to see if the solar cells are sensitive to all wavelengths. You could use coloured cellophane – but then that reduces intensity and not all coloured cellophane has the same percentage transmission.
Search Boyne Island Boyne Island, a residential and industrial town, is 10 km south-east of central Gladstone. It is separated by narrow channels from the mainland and is bordered by the Boyne River to its south-east. It is named after the river, which was charted by John Oxley in Boyne Island was the province of squatters from the s until , when the first pastoral lease was granted. Government resumptions in the s opened much of the land to selection, and further leasehold.
Resumptions in resulted in the establishment of farming and agricultural selections.
Set on 8 acres of subtropical gardens, Discovery Parks – Fraser Street, Hervey Bay (formerly Fraser Lodge Holiday Park and Big4 Discovery Parks – Fraser Coast) is a secluded oasis near the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island.
Every time I go there I find something different, with the most recent discovery being a small patch of Byblis liniflora, a really neat carnivorous plant. The best thing about this little patch of bush is that it is just right there, you know, and most people just dismiss it as yucky bush only good for bulldozing or for 4wding, but there are some really cool things there that people will never ever know about if they don’t take the time to really look.
The same patch of bush must also have some cool drainage patterns, because there is a neat chain of small ponds and an ephemeral creek. Even some of the drier sites on slopes must have poor drainage, because just under the sparse grass is a layer of moss awaiting water. The sites that are really sandy support a veritable carpet of a couple of different species of sundews Drosera, a genus of carnivorous plants.
Drosera finlaysoniana above is an annual sundew, growing, flowering, and setting seed in the course of one season. It is part of the indica species complex which is a bit screwy. Teeny mushroom at the ephemeral creek site Drosera burmannii is another annual sundew. Most at the sites are around the size of a 10c piece, but when fed well get much larger.
They also change colour depending on how much light and food they receive. I have not seen Drosera spatulata at any of the sites yet, which is a bit weird. Some of the larger burmannii look similiar to spatulata but the leaves aren’t spatulate enough and don’t have enough of a stalk to be spatulata. The sites also are home to some tuberous Drosera. These ones grow from a little orange potato looking tuber that grows and then goes dormant each year.

Brief History[ edit ] Because Australian rules football was born in the Australian state of Victoria , and rugby league being the most populous sport in the state, it sees mild popularity within Queensland. However, it is more popular than that of the Northern Queensland region which consists of sporting teams such as the Cairns Taipans who play in the National Basketball League and the North Queensland Cowboys — which are based in Townsville, Queensland — who play in the National Rugby League.
AFL Capricornia is an amateur Australian Rules Football competition played across Central Queensland between the months of March to September, which are typically the cooler months of the Queensland climate. It commenced as an informal, social competition in Rockhampton, and in the competition expanded with clubs playing in Rockhampton and Gladstone , and later variously Blackwater , Biloela , Boyne Island and Yeppoon. During the mid to late ‘s there were eight clubs in the competition.
Since there have been six clubs in the competition, with all clubs having their own grounds to train and play on. It is the only competition in Queensland outside of Cairns and Brisbane to run a full league that includes seniors to juniors at all six clubs. Today many of the former Central Highlands AFL clubs still continue to operate, even thought their without a league to play-in, and even run Auskick programs.
During the reconfiguration of AFL Queensland another representative team closer to Brisbane was given the nickname “Taipans”, this forced the AFL Capricornia to choose a different identity. It was one of the first regional leagues in Queensland to introduce a Women’s League. The game was played before the seniors game, and the eventual winner was the Sisters Roos. Sisters Roos were also holders of the Champions Cup which was given to the winners of the then pre season challenge.
