Monto in Queensland was our next stop for a couple of nights in the caravan park. Hardly anyone in the park which happened in many parks on the way up north in winter and back down south in spring. Plenty of caravans on the road going north and going south.
Never stayed in Monto before so on the second day we drove around the district of this rural town. Population of Motos is about 1,850 people.
Photos of the town and you will notice how parking in some areas is in the middle of the road.
Highest temperature at Monto is 44.5 C (112.1 F) in a January, doesn't say what year.
Above the Retirement Village across from the caravan park.
Many town do have trouble with some magpies being a nuisance to humans, first time I've ever seen a sign like this.
I can think of many things to caption this magpie with.
The Town Pharmacy
Anyone for Tennis!
The Local Pub.
Monto Shire Council building.
Horse Racing track and a bronze statue of Kenny Russell who was a local and world renowned jockey who sadly lost his life in a race fall in October 1993. Ken was born in Monto in 1951.
Looks like holding pens for cattle in Monto.
