Mataranka Police Station – 50 year anniversary

Something very unexpected. We had a visit at our campsite from the local constabulary and had a bit of “what have we done” but they were handing out invitations to the local Police Station’s 50th Anniversary.

So we decided to go along for a look-see, free coffee and cake etc. It was quite interesting with lots of old photos and equipment (like a museum) but the best part of looking through the Arrest Register books and hearing some of the locals saying “Hey fella look here, it’s Uncle Jimmy. He got arrested 5 times in one week. What a naughty black fella”

We also got some free entertainment from a small bird who fell in love with our car’s side mirror; check out the video below.
