Natural selectors

SELECTOR families gathered together last Sunday for the book launch of Teutoburg to Witta at the Witta Recreational Club.

The book tells the story about how the first white settlers to the area had a Northern European background.

Their parents had emigrated to Australia in the mid 19th Century and first settled along the Logan River near Beenleigh.

Book sponsors RE/MAX Hinterland acknowledged the research and commitment of the joint authors, Dale and Steve. Historian Dr Judy Powell launched the book to an appreciative audience before excerpts from the book were read and the authors reflected on the support of the local community for their venture. As the launch provided a focus for local heritage, many were representatives of settler families.

They took the chance to be photographed in family groups.
