Good morning everyone,

My apologies to the "inside country" people this week as I don't have access to all your happenings, (my limited technology).

So, in our local area, the far west we have a host of happenings for those who are out in our wonderful "green" country. What a welcome change.

Next weekend of course is our duty to vote someone into Parliament. Best of luck there. If you are near White Cliffs they have a polling booth there next Thursday and Friday for your  convenience. It would be silly not to stay on for their Music Festival then which is Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Big weekend in White Cliffs.

Would you believe an equally big weekend at Topar, the gang over there are having the Annual Topar Gymkhana, on next Friday and Saturday, support them if you're in the area, but vote before hand or your favourite pollie will miss out.

The following weekend, the 25th. 26th. All roads lead to Menindee, where a group on staunch workers are holding the "Dancing on the Darling", to bring all together to have a "forget your troubles" weekend. Music, entertainment, and hospality for all, free camping, what else could you want.

Now just before that, if you're in the Broken Hill area, why not go along to see "Alice in Wonderland" at the Civic Centre on the 23rd. Sounds like a really good night.

That just about runs us out of May for the out back area, make sure you check out the Information Centres elsewhere, 'cause there's heaps of activities going on down Wentworth/Mildura way, Bourke/Cobar/Nyngan way, all over the place. I'll have those areas for you next week.

If you are travelling through our little town here at Wilcannia, remember we have 2 caravan parks to welcome you, 2 Motels, and of course we are an RV friendly town, so we cater for your caravan waste and can supply you with a top up of potable water.

All roads are currently open in the area and we are assured by the weather bureau that this week will be in the 20's and fine and sunny, what else could you wish for?

Hope you find a great week in front of you all, stop and have a yarn in our little towns, we will welcome you, till next week, take care.

Cheers Bill Elliott.  Wilcannia Community Tourism Association.
