Cobb highway Ivanhoe to Hay open, Walgett Races, and more

Good morning all,

We really know it’s winter now, and doing some caretaking, a pleasant change.

Activity round the outback seems a bit quiet at the moment. The good news is the Cobb highway from Ivanhoe to Hay is open again to traffic. Please drive according to speed signs for your own safety, but all is good again.

Which means you can head up to Ivanhoe for the long weekend and join in the fun of the Pig Hunting weekend. As well as plenty going on at night. Go along and help them make a great weekend of it.

Good roads, Walgett Races and more

Good morning all,

Great to see so many travellers poking around our area, and no problems with wet roads either. In fact there is no rain in sight for the foreseeable future.

Please be cautious on the dirt roads though, our road gangs are doing their best but have a big task in front of them.

Now, what’s happening, we’re back in the bush again for a while and enjoying it!

Land auction, RFDS Ball, Brewarrina Cup and more

Good morning everyone,

I think winter has arrived!

If you are interested in being part of our ‘fabulous west’ now is your opportunity. Blocks of land in Wilcannia, White Cliffs, Menindee and Ivanhoe are going under the hammer on Thursday here in Wilcannia at the community hall. It’s sale of land for unpaid rates, all blocks have to be sold. Ideal opportunity if you would like to relocate, or start up a much needed business in one of our small towns.
