Good ol' tractor goes on parade

IF YOU attend today’s Sunflower Queen Parade, you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a piece of true agricultural pioneering history.

The Daniels family are synonymous with Central Queensland and can be traced back to the mid-1800s when they migrated to the Darling Downs from London in search of pastoral work. In 1896, the family voyaged to the Gindie district, where many still reside, and set about building houses and agricultural properties in what was a virtual no man’s land.

In 1912, the family bought a 1911 international Mogul Type-C tractor to the area. And now the famous tractor will make an appearance at today’s Sunflower Queen Parade in celebration of its 100th birthday.
