Biloela residents visit Eidsvold attractions
IT WAS a day well spent in Eidsvold at the weekend for a group of tourists.
Residents from the Banana Shire Historical Society in Biloela, led by Fay Neale, visited the region and were all impressed with what the town had to offer.
Denese Temu, tourism officer for the North Burnett Regional Council, said the tour group visited numerous sites including the RM Williams centre.
“The group went to the RM Williams Australia Bush Learning Centre where they had morning tea followed by a talk and tour of the centre,” Mrs Temu said.
“They also learnt the history of the beef cattle industry in Eidsvold from the 1930s onwards.
“Afterwards everyone proceeded to the library to view the Norwegian display followed by a stop-over at the Eidsvold station to view the Archer Homestead and the Tolderodden Park.”
The RM Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre volunteers for the day included Dot Hamilton, John and Jan Mossman, Tere Temu and Marshall Langston.
Mr Langston demonstrated his leather-work during the group’s visit.
As a result of the visit additional visits have been made in Eidsvold, he said.
“Tourism has peaked from the weekend’s visit, with other tour groups already booked into the RM Williams Learning Centre over the next few weeks,” Mr Langston said.
ON TOUR: Around 34 people from Biloela toured Eidsvold and stopped at the RM Williams centre.
