MG’s make flying visit to Goondiwindi

leave a comment »

Fourteen (14) MG motor vehicles stopped off for lunch at the Customs House Museum in Goondiwindi on Friday 12 August on day one of their fourteen day tour of Queensland and New South Wales.  There were two 1933 MG”s and models ranging to the late 60s.  Nearly thirty people enjoyed a traditional camp oven lunch complete with billy tea and damper courtesy of the Goondiwindi & District Historical Society, the organisation that manages the historic Customs House Museum.

They are now off to Moree and then Collarenbri, Bourke, Charleville, Longreach, Emerald and back through Chinchilla to their home destinations of Brisbane and Toowoomba.  Trevor Watkins, the organiser of this Outback Tour,  tells me the journey encompasses nearly 3,000 kilometres and is one of the biggest touring parties undertaken in quite a while.  Trevor also appreciated the number of locals that came down to the Museum for a look at these classic vehicles.

They were a great group of people and I wish them well for  the next thirteen days of the tour.
