Eldorado

An Australian town has missed its own 150th anniversary after planning the party three years too late.

Charleville in south-west Queensland had planned to celebrate next year, believing the town had been founded in 1868.  However, historians researching the exact date of Charleville’s inception discovered the historic date was actually 1865.

Mayor Annie Liston admitted the town was “disappointed”, blaming the confusion on a “conflict between two researchers”.

They should've asked the local Aboriginal tribe.  I bet they remember it perfectly!
