Title:  Big Truck
About:
Ann Crawford writes: "This truck is situated in a specially built park along with a coal rail wagon at the northern entrance to the town. Dysart is a small rural/mining community situated in the Central Highlands in Central Queensland. The town was built in 1973 to house the employees at the then newly opened Utah Development Company coal mines of Saraji and Norwich Park. In 1998 Dysart turned 25 and to commemorate this milestone the park was opened and the community celebrated at one of biggest parties ever seen in Dysart. In early 1997 Dysart boasted a population of 4,500 now it stands at 2,200 the casualisation of the workforce has all but destroyed the morale of this grand little community. But we're still here so come take a look at our 'Big Thing'."
