Images of Queanbo – The Big Poo

ant 6 December 2008 16

There is gold in Queanbeyan. Many people only see the edges as they return from the coast, or the main street as they visit Spotlight or the Central Cafe. However! There are things in Queanbeyan worthy of a major tourist town. And foremost among them, I give you: The Big Poo.

The Big Poo of Queanbo

But they didn’t stop at just one, oh no. Someone had a LOT of concrete and so there’s a twin Poo on the other side of that one. And, there’s another, at the rear of the facility! There’s some doubt as to why this poo is in a cage. Some think it misbehaved and has been confined, others reckon it’s being held in reserve, and is caged for its own safety.

Caged Poo

(Apologies for the quality of the images; the little Ixus can only do so much, and they don’t like SLRs in Queanbo, what a point-n-shoot ain’t good enough for you then?)

Fitting, really…

Well, that’s weird. It just didn’t look long enough to be an Olympic one. I tried looking it up on google, but it seems none of the official Qbn sites are working (rather typical, unfortunatley).

Olympic pools are 50m. Remember the 200m individual medley is 50m each of butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle.

Olympic pools are 100m aren’t they? I’m pretty sure Queanbeyan’s is half olympic… actually quite a standard size for a public pool.

How long are Olympic pools? I saw it from the ends, and it didn’t look as long as I remember the Civic pool, but it’s been a while.

Queanbo pool is 50metres long. It’s actually a pretty good facility.

Scratch that – it’s a dump. Canberrans, please don’t come to our pool!

What was interesting, when I wandered down yesterday at lunchtime to get the shot, was that the outside pool had about 2 people thrashing up and down the rows. From what I hear, the Canberra pools are packed out with people fighting in the rows… this isn’t an olympic pool though, I think it’s a half size one. But there’s another the same size inside, that was full of kids, and there’s another pool just insdie the front poo which is either for kiddies, or diving.

Thanks Ant. I had entirely forgotten the glory that is the QBN Pool.

Either way, the person that took the photos would already know this, but seemingly “forgot” to place this information here.

You’re right! It’s a Conspiracy.

ant was merely guilty of a typo – he meant pool, not poo.

It’s at the pool. They’ve been there for years. It’s the entrance and toilets.

The cage isn’t actuallya cage… it’s the fence for the pool compound (I can’t tell in that photo but it could also be for the skate park).

Either way, the person that took the photos would already know this, but seemingly “forgot” to place this information here.

My 6yo just looked at the screen and exclaimed “Where is that big potato ?”

There seems to be a need for a lot of gas vents.

Poo, huh? if your poo has little white sprinkles on top, i would either change your diet or consider seeing a GP. 🙂
