The Queen's Baton relay came through town yesterday, making its way past Mt Isa before reaching the Gold Coast for The Commonwealth Games in April.
The weather conditions meant there had to be some last minute detours to the relay and meant the community celebration at Buchanan Park Entertainment Centre was forced to move inside.
Our local batonbearers were:
Karen and Kim Kreschmann
William and Mace Te Pohe
Sienna Te Wani
