Day 83 Sunday, 31/7/2016, Kingaroy, cold night, beautiful day
This morning tiny bikers are racing their machines around the arena. All decked out in their ‘leathers’ and helmets and knee high to a grasshopper they are.
Bravely we decide to do the self-drive tour of town, we came undone doing this in Charters Towers when Woody threatened to fling the talking CD out the car window. Regardless, we do our best to follow the weird instructions which are as cryptic as a car trial.
Out past ex Queensland Premier Joe Bjelke Peterson’s Bethany property then back across town to the Mt Wooroolin lookout with its 360 degree view of the area. More intriguing than the view is the lookout itself. It is almost as though someone was trying to avoid building steps and instead created a ridiculously steep ramp. Old Joe would have said “Don’t you worry about that.” As he used to say to most of his ‘creative’ state management.
Off again to the Coral Street lookout for a closer view of the town. Uh oh that ramp builder has been at it again, but this one has a crazy lean to the left, which would be OK if you had one leg shorter than the other. The view, well it would have been great if the trees weren’t blocking it.
