6 En­joy a his­tor­i­cal walk

Central Queensland News - - SCHOOL HOLIDAYS -

WALK through his­tory at Hoods La­goon, in Cler­mont. This area is a beau­ti­ful spot for a fam­ily pic­nic or to just re­lax and watch the wildlife on the la­goon. The park is a re­lax­ing venue with bar­be­cues, pic­nic ta­bles and toi­let fa­cil­i­ties. There are a num­ber of foot­paths and board­walks around the La­goon where you can ex­plore the nu­mer­ous memo­ri­als which tell the story of Cler­mont's his­tory. There is a rock wa­ter fea­ture and bridge which crosses the la­goon, which is a pop­u­lar and pic­turesque back­drop for beau­ti­ful pho­tos.

Across the road from the flood marker pole is the fa­mous “pi­ano in the tree”.

This is a replica of an ac­tual pi­ano which was lodged in the tree af­ter flood wa­ter had re­ceded. This pi­ano was one of three pi­anos found in trees af­ter the 1916 flood. Make sure you check it out.
