MUN­DUB­BERA’S Rus­sell Leder­hose has just com­pleted his 11th con­sec­u­tive CQ Char­ity Fun Tour through the area re­cently.

He and his nav­i­ga­tors, Ch­ester Franks and Dennis Labudda, were part of 20 ve­hi­cles and four con­trol ve­hi­cles tak­ing on the tour from Childers to Bar­al­aba.

Mr Leder­hose said he joined the Fun Tour be­cause he en­joyed get­ting to­gether with like-minded peo­ple, help­ing out small com­mu­nity char­i­ties and hav­ing fun at the same time.

“We see dif­fer­ent off road parts of Western Queens­land and never been dis­ap­pointed with any­thing,” he said.

Or­gan­iser was Mick Wal­lace, who now re­sides in Glad­stone but has ties to Biggenden.

His grand­fa­ther Wally Lawrence, the town’s bar­ber and an­other grand­fa­ther, was the baker.

Par­tic­i­pants en­joyed their first stop-over at the Brooweena His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum where they were able to look through the com­plex and watch the var­i­ous work­ing dis­plays.

Head­ing to Biggenden, the cars con­tin­ued on to Chowey Bridge where they had an­other his­tory les­son. It was then on to Mt Perry via Mingo Cross­ing where ev­ery­one viewed first hand the dam­age to the car­a­van park.

The fol­low­ing day, driv­ers made their way to Boon­dooma Home­stead and then on to Mun­dub­bera, where they en­joyed lunch by the Mun­dub­bera Lions Club to help boost their flood ap­peal.

On day three the vis­i­tors left the area and headed to Ta­room and Bauhinia Downs to fi­nally fin­ish at Bar­al­aba.
