CQ Charity 24 vehicles take Fun Tour from Childers to Baralaba
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.
