Outback 2011: Barcaldine: Tree of Knowledge

Heading further west we come to Barcaldine. We last visited that community four years ago. The Tree of Knowledge in the main street had been poisoned the previous year. The dead tree has become the centrepiece of a memorial (I think that’s what you might call it).

When view from the railway station, the “canopy” looks more like an alien object parked recently by a passing spacecraft.
