Beware the resident characters may well surprise you
On an average stroll through the Village chock full of exhibitions and memorabilia one might be bailed up by any of several politically incorrect bushrangers who have perfected the art of surprising unsuspecting visitors. This is one of Queensland's most photographed 'wanted' men – one of the caretakers hailing from Bright where lost their roofer.
Silly old Billy goat – not the principal duffer, the goat – they are so fond of him they even named the tea-shop after him 'The Boiling Billy'. Talk about a poser these resident characters are well trained to keep us all amused.
These and many more are just a few of the interesting characters lurking about the village which is run by a massive team of volunteers who dress up to play the part and educate the guests. So thank them for their community service or join the team?
