Statues in front of a building in Toowoomba which I took as we passed by as the lights changed
Wednesday we were off to Toowoomba for some retail therapy for the day. Had a lovely time in the Grand Central Shopping Centre right in town. Managed to pick up some talking CD books by Bryce Courtney should give us hours of listening when we resume our travels sometime next year.
A few hours of listening here.

We are staying in the Lowood Showgrounds for $9 per night for power and water we will be here for a few weeks as we are leaving the bus in this area when we fly home. (only 22 more sleeps).

This was a champion Standard Poodle out from the UK.
I forget what breed this dog is but it sure is cute.
This Lhasa Apso is being groomed by our friend Pam
Sunday morning we watched the radio control cars racing and were they well organised. In the afternoon we took a tour along the Mary River on the Mary.
The Mary coming in to pick up the customers
That proved a very interesting and enjoyable hour.

Maryborough seems to be an older town and there a lots of the old Queenslanders about and I am quite partial to them, I had one in a minute if they didn't require as much maintenence as they do.
One of the newer Queenslanders still nice.
We took the heritage trail around town and we discovered that our trains are made here, so we took a photo of one of our future Perth Trains.

I wonder how long that will last before it is covered in graffiti. We left this morning on our way inland towards Kingaroy perhaps we will look up Flo to see if she's got the kettle on and the pumpkin scones made. We are spending the night in Kilkivan, a pioneering gold mining town. Only a small town with a few historic buildings but interesting enough. Tonight we may lash out and have tea at the pub, the menu looks ok and it sure beats cooking.
