Murgon’s rural beauty
So much Murgon history in 113 years
CASTRA Retirement Home Murgon has a huge verandah and a panoramic view from there of Boat Mountain and its kindred mountains.
The agricultural arena is a sample of South Burnett farm land and its capacity.
Murgon had its beginning in 1904 when a steam train puffed into the town and Martha Angel was on the verge of opening her shopping venture.
In year 2017 much has happened in the 113 years.
Murgon’s rich history
JOHN Krebs was an enterprising Mayor or Shire Chairman of Murgon Shire Council in the war years and during the years of Murgon Shire autonomy.
Water matriculation was a major project and with it sewerage implementation.
Murgon Shire revelled in its independence after the first train puffed into the first years of the South Burnett town.
Contractor John Krebs was also an undertaker, but his development thoughts were far from the dead.
Fraser Island a great location
FRASER Island is an ever increasing holiday location. David and Kay Oliver are currently spending a fortnight on Fraser Island with their family and the children love it.
Their residence on the Island was established by Lloyd Smyth of Murgon in a pioneer fashion and immediate popularity.
The spacious beach and the perpetuating surf is a magnificent playground for the children.
The spacious beach is also the island highway and access is a natural process.
The Pacific Ocean is a magnificent playground.
Murgon Music Muster on soon
THE Rotary Music Muster is attracting interest all over eastern Australia and placing Murgon on the Music Map.
Music and Murgon become synonymous in year end particularly in eastern Australia.
The target this year is 200 cars in the Murgon Showgrounds.
“M” for Murgon, “M” for Music and “M” for Muster is a triple theme of memorable significance.
It’s been said music makes the world go round and in distribution in 2017 it will be more gone at Murgon.
