Unfortunately due the unfolding corona-virus crisis, we will be temporarily suspending our detector hire service for the short term from now, during the Easter school holidays and possibly beyond.
On the advice of QLD Health, if you are within the 'at risk' group, (60+, with existing health conditions i.e high blood pressure, diabetes, heart or lung disease), we also strongly recommend you consider delaying or postponing your travel plans in light of the current COVID-19 health risks to the travelling public and the limited medical assistance available in our small town.
Thank you for understanding and we wish you the best during these uncertain times.
