Good morning all,

Is everybody ready to go? It’s seems to have been a long time but so good that you all can move about our state once again.

And of course ‘we of the outback’ are ready to welcome whoever would like to venture this way. All our far west towns, our Farm stays, our caravan parks from Wentworth to Cameron Corner.

As there are no actual activities as yet, I suggest you stop by, have a yarn to a local, meet a new friend, and I bet you will have the run of the town in next to no time.

Of course, if you are in the ‘inside country’ and plan to do a big circle, what better than to poke down south through some of the fire ravaged areas and help their economy along and encourage them too.

Back in our own little town, we have 2 great caravan parks, (happy hour each night at Warrawong). If you have a pet then De. Will look after you at the Wilcannia Motel, and has a ‘pop up’ book exchange as well. And still leaves for you the Liberty Motel and the Victory Park caravan park right on the river.

You’ll receive the same welcome if you stop off at White Cliffs, Tilpa, Ivanhoe, Menindee etc. Too many to mention!

Make sure you tune in to our friendly radio stations too for all the latest news and happenings, ABC Broken Hill 999, Dubbo 657 and Wilcannia 1584. 2WEB Bourke 585. And  Wilcannia river radio 103.1 FM.

Of course it’s really important now more so than ever, that we stick to the rules and keep our distances, rinse your ’paws’ often, and show respect for others around.

It’s interesting that a few of the parks and attractions out here are already getting phone calls and enquiries. We just have to do the right thing and make sure we don’t have a relapse, don’t want that.

So, happy travelling to the first cabs off the rank. We’ll regroup again next week and compare notes. If any of you have any news of anything happening, please rattle the keyboard and let me know.

Cheers for now,  Bill Elliott. WCTA.
