Experiencing Banana Shire EDITORIAL
THIS was my first time coming out to the Shire of Banana and visiting Biloela, and it did not disappoint.
I got to stay at the picturesque Callide Dam, where I was able to get a few stunning shots before I head back to Emerald.
The people here were also very friendly and approachable, everybody was willing to talk with and help out a total stranger, which speaks volumes for the community.
Not only did I get to see all Biloela has to offer, I also got to drive out to Thangool and Wowan to report on some incredible stories.
I heard how a local syndicate took home the Thangool Cup for the first time in many years, and I also got to listen to the story of Fred Shean, who was recently inducted into the Racing Queensland Hall of Fame.
On my trip out to Wowan I got absolutely soaked as the region was hit with a large downpour of much-needed rain, but it was worth it for the stories I got to write.
First on my list was a quick visit to the Wowan Pharmacy which opened last month. I got to hear about how much of a benefit the new pharmacy is to the small community.
Lastly it was off to the Wowan Uniting Church, which recently reopened after being badly damaged in the 2012 flood.
It was great while it lasted.
Until next time!
