Following the march past of the troops, detailed in Longreach, 1914 the good citizens of Longreach also organised every motor vehicle to be part of the parade.
Picture #1: The motor vehicle parade. This picture has been split into two parts to get the full range of view without obscuring the detail.
Picture from The Queenslander, 5 September 1914, p. 28.

This parade is quite spectacular in both the organisation and execution. Someone put a great deal of work in making this parade happen.
Picture #2: The only military men left in Longreach - the Rifle Club. This is the whole club on parade.
Not too many eligible military men left in the town any more.
