IT’s official, the Fraser Coast has smashed the Australian record for the most mobility scooters or wheelchairs in convoy.
A whopping 172 participants rolled down the Charlton Esplanade in Hervey Bay on Saturday morning.
Organisers, the Fraser Coast Regional Council, thanked all the participants, helpers and supporters who got involved.
“There are rumours that other council areas are plotting to steal the title, so we can’t wait to do it all again next year,” read a post on Council’s official Facebook page.
“Even bigger and better,” it continued.
The convoy travelled from Scarness Park along the shared cycle/footpath to the All Abilities Playground before turning around and heading back for a celebration.
