Wondia campground

This is another  small town that we really enjoyed. Peter and Molly told us about it as we drove away from their farm, “Don’t miss it” they said.

We asked the Kingaroy campground manager if they knew of a place to stay in Wondai. She not only knew a place but also rang them to find out how much it would cost, at $17 it was a beauty. It had the municipal pool on one side and the RSL on the other. We made good use of both of them. It was also in the centre of town with all the museums, art gallery, main street and pubs in walking, or biking, distance, and another bonus the library was across the road with free internet… Only two permanent campers were sharing the place with us and we never saw them. Think they were workers who left before we got out of bed.

About 7pm we heard a brass band playing so went out to investigate and found in the RSL next door the Wondia Brass band was having its weekly rehearsal, so of course we had to buy a beer and listen to them. They were good and the barman told us there had been a band for approx 100 years.

We spent 2 days in Wondia lots to see, a very good heritage museum, wood museum and art gallery and interesting curio shops. The town was very attractively laid out and we had a tasty meal of corned silverside at the Cecil Pub.
