300 stop for Driver Reviver on hwy

MORE than 300 travellers took advantage of a break along the Cunningham Highway at the long weekend for a cuppa and a snack.

Driver Reviver volunteer Brenda Black had just finished her shift with husband Neville and said there was plenty of traffic passing by with visitors from the Varity Bash, Goomburra and the Allora Auction.

There were plenty of travellers who explored the Southern Downs from across the seas from Canada to the Middle East.

“Today from 9am to noon we were the busiest we have ever been and we have been volunteering here for a while,” Mrs Black said.

A group of campers from Redland Bay enjoyed the frosty winter weather camping at Queen Mary Falls and stopped to give themselves and the children a break before the Cunningham’s Gap.

“It stops you from crashing and gives you a good rest,” camper Steve Barratt said.
