It is a bit of a surprise that almost half the year has gone and we are now feeling the chill of the winter coming on.  On Sunday we were all pleased to get into the comfort of our cars and head off on our trip. Ten( cars were in the group that left Ernest Peak Park at Drayton and headed south through Wyreema, Cambooya, Clifton then to Allora for our morning tea break.  The terrain through this area is reasonably flat with many wide open paddocks with very healthy looking cattle grazing in them. A few challenging potholes tested us a bit, but we handled them without trouble. At the park in Allora we met up with Phil and Marilyn (and that made 11 cars).  We then each sought out a sunny spot to set up our chairs for our cuppa and chat.  It was quite comfortable there and we enjoyed catching up.

After we left Allora there was a short stint on the New England Highway then we turned east towards Goomburra.  We followed this road to Gladfield where we joined the highway to Warwick until we reached the Freetone road. We followed this road through much hillier and picturesque terrain to Freestone, then Yangan, Killarney and on to Browns Falls Park at the base of the hill before Queen Mary Falls. 

Once again we found a sunny spot to sit as the breeze was a bit on the cold side. As we had lunch it was discussed who wanted to go up to Queen Mary Falls and who wished to go up the creek to Browns Falls. About 50/50 went each way and they seemed to enjoy their effort.  Of course Queen Mary Falls is developed for the tourist and the other falls are much more natural (meaning harder to get to without either getting wet or spraining an ankle).  Both worth seeing though.

It soon came time for us to leave and head home, but a couple of us decided to stop to watch a Polocrosse competition being held in Killarney for a while. Unfortunately we arrived just as it was finishing, so we still don’t know much about the sport, except you need very strong and smart horses to play.  We will stick to MGs.

May Run  - 10 May, 2023

On 10 May our mid week month run took us to Nobby to the old historical Rudd;s Pub for lunch.

Joining us was a special guest from Brisbane, David Miles who travelled up in his MGBGT. It was great to catch up with him

Rudd's pub is very well known for its hospitality and huge beautiful meals enabling some members to take home a doggy bag.

Missed out seeing Phil and Marilyn as their triump spitfire decided to misbehave at Allora and returned home on a tilt tray. Better luck next time.

Fraser Month March Run - 26 March, 2023

Rob and Narelle organized our monthly run which began at Peacehaven Park on a very foggy morning.

With 7 cars we departed as the rolling mist floated in.
Heading towards Goombungee and through Haden , the clouds sissapated and the sun shone through

Our destination for morning tea was at Crows Nest park with the smell of the aftermath of rain.

Continuing on our way we passed through Perserverence dam and then on to Cressbrook Dam,doing a lap around and not disturbing the residents there (four huge kangaroos )dining on the green grass.

Taking the back way to Esk we drove up hills and down dales admiring the beautiful scenery and how lush and green it all looked.

On to the Grand hotel at Esk to be met with an enthuastic hostess and enjoyed a lovely meal.
