  • Outback Adventure !- Barcaldine

    Wayne and Jacqui left beautiful Emerald and travelled to Barcaldine.
    Barcaldine is a small town in Western Queensland, Australia.Major industries are sheep and beef cattle rearing.
    Barcaldine played a significant role in the Australian labour movement and the birth of the Australian Labor Party. In 1891, it was one of the focal points of the 1891 Australian shearers’ strike, with the Eureka Flag flying over the strike camp. The landmark Tree of Knowledge, under which the strikers met, stood outside the railway station. In 2006, persons unknown poisoned the tree with the herbicide Roundup, which led to its demise.
