Fifty cars, trucks and vans, and there were at least four helicopters watching the action as the North Queensland Convoy headed through Charters Towers. Images like these will make the Labor Party break into a sweat.
These pics from the You tube of the aerial shots as the convoy went through Charters Towers.

Do you support the convoy? Farmers, Miners, business-people are seeing their life’s work come undone, but some Canberrans are very angry that the traffic will be heavy on Monday. Commenters are resorting to petty name-calling.
