Heavy traffic, Bundaberg.

De Havilland DH-85 Leopard Moth VH-BAH, standing in for Bert Hinkler’s Avro Baby during the 1973 Hinkler 1000 Air Race. The aircraft was re-enacting the occasion when pioneer aviator Bert Hinkler landed his Avro in the main street of Bundaberg, Qld in the 1920s, taxied to his mother’s house and parked outside.

An unusual and historic event, but I’ll bet the town that invented Bundaberg Rum has seen stranger things over the years.
