  • Rainforest Boyd's Dragon, just hanging out 😎 
Boyd's forest dragons spend the majority of their time perched on the trunks of trees, usually at around head height, although daily movements can exceed 100 m (330 ft) on the ground. When approached, they will usually move around to the opposite side of the tree, keeping the trunk between them and their harasser.

Unlike most other lizards, Boyd's forest dragons don't bask in the sun, instead letting their body temperature fluctuate with air temperature (thermoconforming rather than thermoregulating). The one possible exception to this general rule is gravid (pregnant) females, which are often observed sitting on or beside forest roads and exhibit elevated body temperatures.

  • A gorgeous building in a gorgeous town. Step back in time at the Majestic Theatre Malanda.

The Majestic is full of history – it is, in fact, a living museum. Built by the English family in 1928/29 , it was constructed out of local hardwood timber, milled next door, and is held together by over 250,000 nails. It has survived cyclones, windstorms  and other natural events. The Majestic played a huge roll in entertaining troops during WORLD WAR 2.

While it is a historic building of significance, offering a unique and very special  old style cinema experience, there is nothing old about the picture and sound quality.  It uses the latest state - of - the - art digital projection and sound processing equipment.
