This is the Masonic lodge - it is a really strange building made out of corrugated iron and it stood out in the street!
Above is the main street of Barcaldine
One thing Barlcaldine is famous for is the 'tree of knowledge' which is outside the railway station. It is a memorial to the men who fought for workers rights back in 1891 and formed the basis of the labour union movement and eventually the formation of the Labour party.
The tree (which was killed in 2006 by some form of protest) sits under this somewhat 'eye sore' of a box and from a distance you think .... yuck! but when you stand under it you soon realise that it is actually quite cool!
