Perfect Light Festival, Broken Hill Rock Fest, and more

Hello everyone,

This will be my last bit of triviality for the year, which is almost gone once again. So make room for Santa, and if you’re still travelling round our great outback then there’s a few good Christmas parties you can drop in on and be most welcomed.

You can’t possibly make them all, but the Perfect Light Festival is on in Broken Hill from the 1st. to 3rd.  The White Cliffs Christmas Party is happening on the 2nd.  and the Hay Can Car Rally is passing through that very same town of White Cliffs on the 3rd.

You’ll have to choose between that and the Cobar Christmas Festivities, which are also on the 3rd.

To fill in up to Santa for you, the Menindee Carols by Candlelight is taking place in the little river town on the 8th. Duck over then to Ivanhoe for the big Raffles night at the RSL Club, and whilst in the little town, check out your favourite sport on Foxtel at the Pub.

You’ll  just have to be in Broken Hill for the Rock Fest which is raging on the 16th, and the best way to do that is up the Cobb Highway, (in perfect condition at the moment), drop in to our little town here and have a meal and coffee with Julie at Miss Barrett’s or Steve down at the Courthouse Cafe. No need to rush then ‘cause you’re on bitumen!

I now need to thank all you great people who have supported me through the year, sent me your goings on, promoted our little town for us, but most of all the little emails of encouragement that mean so much.

No doubt we will try and repeat the “ramblings” again next year. I would dearly love to hear from any of you with ideas of a revamped “THIS ‘en THAT, you must be getting sick of it at times.  So, till we meet again, probably about the end of January, you all have a great Christmas and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.

On behalf of the Wilcannia Community Tourism Association, thanks heaps,   Cheers Bill Elliott.
