Two old farts go to the Gympie Muster
The farts in question are Walter and Peter.
Walter is of German origin so you can guess what we had for lunch, mine was minus the sauerkraut.though.
There are other staple foods that are very well represented at the Muster, and of course the states pride and joy 4XXXX beer has pride of place.
The iconic "R M Williams" who started out as a bootmaker and is now a leading boot and country style clothing supplier.
The Muster is in its 31st year and is unique in that a group of charity organizations, headed by The Apex Club, organize and run this event each year, I think the total amount raised and shared among these charities is in the 10 million dollar range, so its not just good music but good for the community too.
If you look at the left hand side of the main stage you will see these two trees, they are stamped out of metal sheet and mounted on a corrugated iron wall which is painted yellow, the lighting behind them makes for a spectacular effect at night.
And of course no post would be complete without a shot of some of the local wildlife!!!!!
