Have you climbed the 𝔾𝕆𝕃𝔻𝔼ℕ 𝔾𝕌𝕄𝔹𝕆𝕆𝕋? 👢
There’s a long-standing rivalry between the Tropical North Queensland towns of Tully, Babinda and Innisfail as to which can claim to be the wettest! 🌧 They even have a competition called “The Golden Gumboot”!
The rivalry took a new twist when Tully erected the Golden Gumboot, after getting the inspiration from “The Golden Gumboot” trophy 🏆 awarded annually since 1970 to the town with the highest rainfall. ☔️
The gumboot stands 6.1 metres long and 8 metres high – just a fraction higher than the 7.93 metres of rainfall 💧 recorded by Tully in 1950, which was the highest annual rainfall ever recorded by an Aussie town. There's an internal spiral staircase that winds its way up to a viewing platform where you can take in the view over the town. 🙌🏽
So if you’re in the region, or driving through 🚘, make it a point to stop and checkout the Golden Gumboot! 💛
