Biloela res­i­dents visit Eidsvold at­trac­tions

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.
