Pivoting windmill

Windmills are a common sight in rural Queensland. Most are of a similar design but varying in size. Windmill manufacturing in Queensland was dominated by two brands – Southern Cross and Comet.

But there were many variations including the Swing or pivoting windmill built by the Steel Wings Co of North Sydney. This windmill was erected on Kinnoul outside Taroom. It was restored and re-erected in a park at Taroom in 2003.
