    Tambo chicken race!

    June 26, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We went to the local pub “The Royal Carrangarra”! Where they run a chicken race every night. It was great fun! See the next photo on FB! They used a remote control car with a container with seed in it that the chickens chased! You then placed bets on the various chickens! Half the proceeds went to the winner the other half went to the Royal Flying Dr service.Read more

    Tambo, Queensland

    August 30, 2014 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    The bus from Brisbane was 13 hours. A horrendous length in English terms, but in Australia, that'll only get you half way across one territory. And that was still half the length of one of the bus rides I took from Laos. It was bareable in the end none the less. I had my guitar with me on the coach to keep me occupied at the back, and a group of Canadian chicks joined in and travelled with me for half the journey. They were probably the last females my age I'd see for 2 months.

    I got the job offer after making some phone calls to the contacts Ryan had set me up with at my real estate job. The company was Usher Pastoral and they arranged for me to join a family out near Tambo on a ranch called Truno. I arrived early in the morning on my first day and got picked up at the local petrol station by a very Australian sounding man, Ronnie Haffey, who drove me, my heavy backpacks, and my Akubra cowboy hat to get settled in on the ranch.

    Tambo

    August 4, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Drove the 216 km to Tambo, stopped at Augathella for coffee on the way, On arrival booked into the Mill Motel Caravan Park. After lunch we walked around to the site of the first Qantas plane crash causing a fatality. On 24 March 1927 the DH9C aircraft ( G-AUED) on a regular flight, between Charleville and Mt Isa with Tambo as its secondary destination, was seen to dive suddenly into the ground. Later on we went to the Pub for tea and watch Ben's chicken race. So far the chicken races have raised over $9000 for the RFDS.Read more
