    “Pastimes make time pass agreeably. This has always been so. Central Queensland remained relatively isolated prior to the Second World War. Holidays in distant places were for the privileged few. People amused themselves on their hard-won public holidays at picnics, racing, river or railway excursions, street processions, team sports and (by 1930) a new pastime, mini golf. … The Capricornia Collection Society works to support the Library of the University College of Central Queensland. Photographs reproduced in this booklet are from the Library’s Capricornia Central Queensland Collection and Rockhampton and District Historical Society Collection. They remind us of the simple pleasures of past generations.” (from foreword)
