Sign in the main street of Boulia

It is approximately 1900 kilometres north west by road from Brisbane according to this sign but 1700 when I did Google Maps-what's a couple of hundred kilometres when you've come this far?
Today we started the family history weekend school for budding family historians in Boulia. The Local QCWA(Queensland Country Women's Association) and the Rural Arts Development fund has sponsored  us to travel to Boulia. Boulia Shire Council, Ancestry and Find My Past are also sponsors of the weekend.
The Shire Hall in Herbert St was buzzing with participants learning how to find their ancestors.
