“Bright Morning, Mt Mulligan”
Giclee, 510 x 990 mm
Another great rocky outcrop with a history. For many years, this was the site of an underground coal mine which provided coal for the early steam trains of North Queensland. Then in 1921, there was a huge explosion which killed over seventy miners. It was the worst mining disaster in Queensland. The Aborigines had warned that it was a place of bad spirits, but the miners disregarded the warnings.
I saw it on a bright morning, with a clear sky after recent rain, and its ominous character was not that day evident.
