    Super set Mark, and very glad you made it......…...…

    My Dad gave me an old Fordson tractor when I was in Africa at the age of =<5 years old. I drove it for miles and miles...……….Looked just like your photo's Fordson without the flashy wheels.........

      Lovely set of photos Mark. It turns out that I have been to Ilfracombe, both in the UK and in Queensland. I stopped off to refuel my vehicle in the Queensland version while on my round the south-west of Queensland ramble in September this year. Looking at your photos makes me sad that I didn't have a bit of a look around. My mind was set on visiting the Australian Stockmans Hall of Fame in Longreach and so I refueled and kept on driving.

        I drove through Longreach, looked like a huge tourist trap, kept on driving!
        From Wang' I drove a 3,000km circuit via Longreach, Mt Isa, Camoweal, Tennant Creek, Coober Pedy Port Augusta Adelaide, Melbourne, Home.
        I did it in 14 days.

            Shouldn't this be 'New Ilfracombe'?

                I think they are a kind of parrot or budgie...

                Those pink and grey parrots are called "galahs" and make a frightful noise. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galah

              OM, I think it's just a sculpture.

              Ian, so MJ224 reminded me!

              As Griffljg says, they are galahs, actually Cockatoos. due to their antics in flight they are also known as "The Clowns of the air".
              I have seen them showing off to their wing mates by flying inverted.
