An assortment of Hot Rods - Goulburn

Had a washing and tidying up morning enjoyed with our hosts’ company.

The big event planned for the day was the Hot Rod Annual Convention being held in Goulburn. We headed out to the race track where up to 300 assorted rods from all over Australia were on display.

They were all extra-ordinary. Hours of gawking and photographing was followed by lunch whilst listening to the live band and then a browse through the stalls was a very enjoyable day.

Margaret then showed us through the local Presbyterian Church which was open to the public. The original stained glass windows were intricate in their hand painting of detail. The 3000 pipe organ is probably the largest original church organ still in use in Australia. Every part of the church has been well preserved or restored. Truly magnificent. They are raising $1million to complete the church spire which had never been built. Such a worthwhile cause. It did look like it needed one

Dinner that night was pizza with a healthy side salad. The Nells a a truly healthy and fit pair in their late 70s. Was an honour to stay with them.
