Dalby’s first week­end of free­dom

Dalby Herald - - LIFESTYLE -

QUEENS­LAN­DERS have gained back some of their cher­ished free­doms late last week such as be­ing able to have a pic­nic, do some non-es­sen­tial shop­ping and travel 50km from their homes. While the streets of Dalby are not as vi­brant as they once were, some peo­ple are seiz­ing the op­por­tu­nity to get out and about dur­ing this long week­end. Gareth de Bruin and Peta Ed­wards spent Labour Day re­lax­ing at Thomas Jack Park.

“It’s nice to be able to get out for a bit,” Mr de Bruin said.

They were en­joy­ing a bit of fresh air while treat­ing them­selves to some McDonald’s un­der the shade.

Brad and Emily Prosser were among many Dalby res­i­dents tak­ing a walk with their dogs along Myall Creek.

“We’ve had a pic­nic and went for a walk,” they said.

Over at Lake Broadwater, about 30km from Dalby, the Moyes fam­ily were en­joy­ing the weather and hav­ing lunch. “[We’re] glad to fi­nally be able to leave the house (at a safe dis­tance) and en­joy what the greater sur­rounds of Dalby have to of­fer for the fam­ily,” they said. Jes­sica Zis­chke was pic­nick­ing near the lake with her new­born baby Sam and mother Aletha Funke.

“It’s been a fan­tas­tic beau­ti­ful day. We’ve seen some very in­ter­est­ing birds,” Mrs Zis­chke said.
