Pooncarie Gun Club Shoot, Menindee Markets and more

Good morning all,

I’m getting better it’s still morning! Sorry I’ve been a bit slack, have been away doing all sorts of things.

Still can’t talk about wet roads unfortunately, and there’s none between here and the east coast or Victoria.

Ran into 2 lovely couples on Saturday night at the Denman RSL. Great little friendly town, they said they have the “Upper Hunter Wine and Food Fair” on in Denman on Saturday 5th. May. So if you’re in that area guarantee Paul and Merry will look after you all.

Now of course Anzac Day Wednesday, you are all welcome in any of our little outback towns, by all means come along.

Then next weekend, the 27/28th. is the Pooncarie Gun Club Shoot, a big event for that little town, crack a clay or two. If you only get as far as Menindee, then the Menindee Markets are on Saturday the 28th 

Which takes us to the next weekend, And Agfair is the way to go in Broken Hill on the 4/5th. May . You’ll never get through it all in 2 days, great show.

If you’re not near Broken Hill, then head to Cobar on those same days, 4/5th. for the Cobar Show, known for it’s horse events.

MT. Gipps is opening!! Scott is planning to open the “old” Mt. Gipps Hotel, with  new king size units and van park, date, 4th. June, opening discounts apply, they’ll be fantastic.

Speaking of “Out of the ordinary Outback” Janene and crew in Argent Street have heaps of tours to suit everyone on during the holidays so drop in to the office in Argent St, and have a yarn.

Then head for the Darling and stop by at Louth on Saturday the 9th. and see their big Field Day and head down the Darling to our little Wilcannia, for our Big Field and Fun Day starting at 10 AM on Sunday 10th. We have fun for all, wool bale rolling, shearing, sheep dog ex. Horse demo. Trade stands, but wait there’s more!

Anyway, that will do for this week, make sure you meet a stranger and gain a friend. Tune to our outback radio stations, they’re for you.


Take care, Bill Elliott. Wilcannia Community Tourism Ass.
