predictions: olive trees will grow well in Western QueenslandPosted: February 25, 2013
At the bottom of this Courier Mail par (17 April 1940) about a meeting of The Royal Geographical Society of Queensland, there’s a mention of a lantern lecture by Mr D A O’Brien. He predicted that Charleville in Western Queensland could become one of the greatest olive-growing centres in the world.
Yes – they are growing olives in Charleville today. Watch out world!
