    If it's from imgur.com, the URL they give you doesn't include the filetype, so (in most instances) adding .jpg to the code will make the IMG pop up.

    That looks like scary inland from Townsville, @Dale.Whiley. Charters Towers area?

    Love the guesswork Eggy, and I look forward to @Dale.Whiley 's reply. Having said that I spy some electrically powered lighting and plastic chairs so fear you'll be a little off in your assessment mate.

    It was the hats @stillshunter. I did a bit of work out at Ravenswood gold mine for a while and its definitely 10 gallon hat country.

    But yes a bit of a shock to learn they have electricity around there if I am anywhere near correct.

    Well done @eggbert. The Charters Towers Rodeo Stadium at the Dalymple Cattle Saleyards. The new roof over the arena makes a good change from sitting in the hot sun in the middle of summer. I sold coffee at an Easter rodeo a few years ago, slept on the concrete seats with the wind howling across the arena with the temperature in town at -1 degree C plus wind chill after 30+ during the day. Gotta love the inland; hot & cold.

    I drive up for the annual New Years Eve PBR Rodeo. Yeah; I wear a hat daily.

    I'll take the plaudits, but there aren't really that many places inland of the twin cities that you can get to easily, so it wasn't much of a guess.

    More news for you @eggbert. We have a new rodeo stadium opening this month (http://northqueenslandeliterodeo.com.au/ ) 20 minutes drive away. Located a few km's out towards Hervey's Range past the Black River Road intersection (being an ex-local you'd know the area). I drone out on Saturday to have a look around & met Quentin Kersh the owner and chatted for a short time. Good bloke who loves his rodeo. With Charters Towers, Bartlett Park & now NQ Elite stadium up and running it provides regular entertainment, even with the closure of some other local venues.

    Can't say that I was that local - lived in Cairns mainly when I was over east. I did go down a few times though, and even went for a job at the gold mine not far away. I think we even went to a rodeo at the old place which is why I recognised your photos.

    Always enjoy a drive out to Ravenswood. Last time out that way about 7-8 years ago now, I hit a fair lump of a eagle in the 4WD. As the eagle and the antenna went sailing over the roof before the eagle hit the ground he'd corrected from the spin he was in & just flew off. Here I am all these years later with a coat hanger still in place as an antenna.
