Goat-racing museum a 'world first' for outback Qld
May 7, 2008 - 6:23AM
A world-first museum and 'Racing Hall of Fame' dedicated to goats is being planned in outback Queensland.
A committee has been formed in Barcaldine and wants to raise $300,000 in government funding and sponsorship for the museum.
Spokesman John de Groot says it is hoped the complex will be housed at the Workers Heritage Centre in the town and will be ready to open next year.
"As far as we know, this will be the first goat museum in the world," he said.
"I'm almost certain as well that there's no Goat Racing Hall of Fame anywhere out there in the universe except for what's proposed at Barcaldine.
"It's an acknowledgement of a wonderful animal that's just been so important to so many people for such a long time."
Sort of speaks for itself, really. Mr Dumbledore, your post-war retirement location awaits you.
