On a quick family visit yesterday to my childhood home I passed this little gem.
Of course I just had to stop and take a few photos. I used to pass this on the way to school every day and I think it looked the same way back then! I think the hand rails are newish as I don't believe it had any back in my day.
Trebonne is located 10 km north west of Ingham on the road to Wallaman Falls.
The building is a very historic Post Office, operating for almost 100 years. It is a quaint building that appears to be held together by two rusty nails. It is still functioning as a private post box collection point today.
I never went into this place when it was still functioning as a Post Office! But oh how I wished now that I had done so when I had the chance!
Wouldn't it be great to collect your letters and parcels here!
Once we got back to the main town area this tower caught my eye. Forever on the landscape it was erected in 1953 to supply the town with water. It reaches just over 35 metres high and holds over 45,000 litres. Really only a big tank on stilts.......LOL!
With the sun shining off the tank in the late afternoon the top almost appears out of a brochure for the middle east.
