The first of these was the Queanbeyan Water Quality Treatment Plant (aka the poo pits). Despite the name they are actually in the ACT suburb of Beard. The highlights here were a Musk Duck (Bird of the Day) and a Great Cormorant nest with 2 chicks visible at times.
My main purpose in visiting the town was to attend the annual Rodeo.
The main bull riding events were slated for late in the evening. However I did get to see the first round of the Junior Bull Riding. Here we have a rider getting prepped in the chute. The actual rider is just visible - note white helmet indicated by tearrow!
