Good morning all,

Just can’t pick our weather. Look out for wet roads, look out for rough roads, now it’s back to “careful in the dust”, once again.

Let’s get down to travelling, the Cobar Picnic Races combine with the Wentworth Show as the feature events for next week end. You will be welcome at both.

Now the next weekend, Peter and Patsy at the Silverton Pub have the Country Music Muster on the Sunday, then Steve Eales on stage the following Sunday the 8th. And the wind up day of the Broken Heel Festival” on Sunday 15th.Now the Flyer is attached so get ready to head out to that neck of the woods for a couple of weeks of fun. If you’re not sure what’s on, just drop in to the Broken Hill Visitors Centre, Patrick and the gang there will have you organised in a flash. You’ll have time to do a trip or two with Cindy at “Out of the Ordinary Outback”, drop in and see her.

That puts us close to the October long week end. 

There’s a massive full week end at Tibooburra. You’ll have a ball up there for their Gymkhana and Rodeo, as well as heaps of other things to do.

If, on the other hand you’re too far away, then try dropping in to the fantastic town of Bourke. They have their “Festival of a Thousand Stories” happening in the first week on October. You can then make your way through our great outback country and take in “Operas in the Outback” with Brad Cooper and crew back at the Silverton Pub on the 19th. October.

That’s far enough ahead for now, don’t forget to drop by in our little town here at Wilcannia, 2 caravan parks, 2 motels, heaps to see, De’s pop up book exchange at the motel.

Caravan dump site on the highway, potable water for you at the BP depot as well as 24 hr. fuel. Love to see you.

Till next week, have a good one, cheers Bill Elliott. Wilcannia Community Tourism Association
