Pinecres golf course in central Queensland is a fascinating place to visit.
The course was built in the 1800s, and is the oldest in the country.
In the 1930s, it was the site of a shooting range and the site where the famous ‘Blackfoot’ men would have shot arrows at each other.
In 1936, the area was used as a military base and for testing and training.
It’s a lovely, secluded place with views over the mountains.
But when it comes to the ‘oldest’ course in Australia, you’re not likely to see a car park, no shopping centre, no hotel and no visitors centre.
It has been around since the 1800’s and is a wonderful, peaceful place to relax on a sunny summer’s day.
It was built by the British Royal Engineers in a plan to provide a suitable training ground for the British troops in the Second World War.
The golf course is not currently in use, and it’s not on the National Trust’s list of ‘worlds oldest’ places.
That makes Pinecresh golf course one of the oldest golf courses in the world, and the only one on Australia’s National Register of Historic Places.
Pinecretes is located on the mainland of Queensland in the state’s far south.
It is a small and secluded area with a very little traffic on the road and about 60 kilometres away from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
It also offers a number of natural attractions such as the ‘Blackfeet’ Shooting Range, which was built at the site, and a beautiful stream that flows through the golf course.
There are also several bird watching sites and picnic spots.
The ‘Black-foot’ Shooting Line is a favourite among locals and tourists, and attracts visitors to the site from around the world.
The old ‘Tiger’s Head’ rock formation was formed by a rock that fell from a mountain, and has been photographed by tourists and locals alike.
In fact, locals are often drawn to the area for the ‘tiger’s head’ formation and the beautiful view of the surrounding bushland.
The park was built as a training ground and then used for testing, training and testing the British army.
The shooting range was used by the Blackfoot Indians, who were using the course as a shooting ground during the Second WWI.
The area is open to the public from 9am to 5pm, and can accommodate a crowd of up to 30.
The site also has a museum that holds artifacts from the period, including arrows and musket balls.
There is also a visitor centre that provides a wide range of services and information for the public.
You can visit the site at Pinecrees Golf Course, on the island of South Island, and in the surrounding area, from September to October.
Pinecatchers will love the views over Lake Burley Griffin and the river, the lake itself, and its banks.
You’ll also find the local wildlife and the many birds that live here including the rare bird of prey, the rare kookaburra.
You’re likely to find plenty of great picnic places around the lake, and plenty of walking paths that can make your day enjoyable.
If you want to try your luck on the water, there are numerous beaches and boating options available.
