Post 6 – Malanda

Success at last with the Platypus, but lets start at the beginning.

Today was nominated Museum Day – so we went Herberton Historic Village where historic buildings from the locality have been moved complete, or dismantled and re-erected, all on a 2-3 acre site west of Atherton. It was really fascinating and each building represented a different aspect of the complete village, from a country pub moved on the back of a low loader, to very rudimentary station hands’ accommodation. Several shop premises were represented as well as a school and a vicar’s house.

The Mining Museum was next and then home to focus on the main event –
Platypus hunting – which was finally successful. The cute little chap paraded up and down in front of lots of excited Japanese tourists and more phlegmatic locals. See the pictures to prove it!!
