Wind blown roads, lots happening - Bourke, Packsaddle, Eldee Station

Hello everyone,

I feel today is going to be a repeat of last week. ‘cept the roads are a bit worse!

I was on the Wanaaring road today, which has prompted me to advise you all, please be very careful on dirt roads, everywhere. There are an enormous number of stock transports moving around.

Dirt roads are becoming wind blown, and exposing stones and ruts. It can be particularly dangerous for caravans. In fact, the Cobb highway I believe is not at all suitable for caravans. So please be very cautious, seek advice in each town and take care. Dust is hazard, as are ‘roos, and stock.

Easter weekend is our next big happening. Remember the events I mentioned last week. Big activities at Bourke, Packsaddle, Eldee Station, Wentworth/Mildura, Wilcannia and others.

After that we have the Cobar Rodeo, on the 7th. April. Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery for the art enthusiasts opening on the 23rd. through to the 14th. April.

Then the White Cliffs Gymkhana, me thinks is the 21st./22nd. April. Anzac Day in all towns of course, you’re welcome at any of our towns.

Following on we have The Wagga Gold Cup for the racing enthusiasts on 3rd. 4th. May. Agfair Field Day in Broken Hill on the 4/5th. May. Louth Field Day on the 9th. June and our very own Wilcannia Field and Fun Day on the 10th. June.

Of course the biggest cause for celebration!!! Daylight saving ENDS on Easter Sunday, yes!

Please be careful on our roads, if you’re heading for one of our fabulous Farm Stays, and there’s lots of them, take care and you’ll have a fantastic stay.

Cheers for now, stop and smell the roses, you’ll meet a new friend.  Bill Elliott.  Wilcannia Community Tourism Association.
