The Tambo Teddy is a bear that is completely hand made with Australian wool. It is hand made in Tambo and was the invention of some towns people to try to keep close to the wool industry when it failed in their area. Also to keep the little town alive.  The bear is famous in Australia and one was a gift from our government to little Prince George when he arrived into the world.  Each bear is numbered and referenced and is unique. The bears are named after Stations in the area.  Mine is Called "Tambo Station Ted"

This unusual horse sculpture was right next door. It is made of twisted and tangled wood.

I’m enjoying tagging along with you. We travelled out that way as far as Longreach on the bike in about 2003 I think. It brings back memories. I think there are a lot more sculptures around now, but we did see the ants. I loved visiting the Blackall wool scour, as Dad worked in one here for a little while before I was born. Looking forward to your next posts.
