LOOKING BACK: Historic photos show Burnett's sporting legacy

AS SEASON grand finals wrap up around the region and summer sports kick off, we decided to take a deep dive through the archives.

We've found photos of Burnett sporting clubs throughout the ages, from an early 1900s footy match at Barambah Aboriginal Settlement (now Cherbourg), to Kingaroy's 1935 croquet club, and even Yarraman's dumbbell squad from 1923.

Yep, you read right. Yarraman had a dumbbell squad.
