Travellers check into town
A MOTORCADE of quirky four-wheel-drives called ‘Okas' are coming to the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre on Sunday, October 31.
Travelling couple, Lynn and Yvonne Fraser, are not only excited about rolling up in their unique vehicle doing a book signing at the Cultural Centre in late October.
“We get stopped all over Australia by people curious to look at it,” Mrs Fraser said.
In conjunction with the Queensland Transport Museum at the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre, their Oka will be on display alongside other Oka owners.
The Oka is an Australian-made decommissioned military vehicle and Mrs Fraser believes there are only a few hundred in existence, most of which are in private hands now.
We have a great response from the Oka owners so it should be a great turnout.
“They are scattered across the countryside and we have been up in Cape York working on the new edition of our book Cape York – A 4x4 experience,” she said.
“It is our stomping ground and we got a Queensland Tourism Award for the book.
“We used to do RACQ travel guides, and other articles for people like the Caravan and Motorhome association.”
