Great historical outback town! We loved this place!! Very typical and old fashioned outback welcome from all the locals. Fascinating history; in its heyday it boasted 39 pubs! It was the fourth largest town in Queensland!
Everyone here is so incredibly proud of their heritage and it shows in the cleanliness and tidiness everywhere!
Just behind our camper we found this magnificent bower! Great pride was taken by the bird who came at regular intervals to adjust his pieces of brken glass. The red at the side was very eye catching. It was so attractive to the other bower birds that the owner had to oeep chasing away other males who were trying to claim it as their own!
We spent a leisurely morning wandering through the town and soaking up the history.
As we walked passed the jail, someone started coughing! This old fellow then sarted to speak to us!
