Good morning all,

Had a hick up last week and many thanks to those who rang, and thanks also to Fiona for filling in “the gap” for me.

Have bought 3 tomato plants and emptied the wheel barrow! More frosts or not I wonder.

Starting here at home base, we have our RFDS nurse here again today, tomorrow and Wednesday to do Covid testing. She will have her table set up in Ray Hunter Park,

10 AM till 2 PM today and tomorrow for locals and travellers alike, and then same time Wednesday on the highway opposite the oval for easy parking for the truckies.

Drop in and have a yarn to Anita, the RFDS is doing an amazing job in this Pandemic period. And by the way, De’s “Pop up Book shop” is straight over the road at the Wilcannia Motel, swap a couple.

Again this week we have had many travellers poking through our town and stopping for a yarn and having a look. It’s good for business and hopefully enticing them to  revisit again one day.

With no rain recently and none I believe in the near future, all our unsealed roads should be good for site seeing our nice green country, but of course be careful of the stones and the wash outs on some of them.

My apologies to Karen in Cobar, I hope I have your email right this time Karen.

Now Jane Frazer down at the Edward River region tells me their Information Centre down at Deniliquin is now up and running, and they’re just waiting for you to drop in and have a yarn, or see them on info@edwardriver.nsw.gov.au . remember the “Deny Ute Muster”? They’ll do it again one day!

So great to be getting so many enquiries from so many of you good people, keep it up ‘cause we’re happy to be able to help.

Don’t forget too, there’s heaps of other things going on in all our outback towns, lots to see and do, places to stay and places to eat. Just stop in the street, talk to a local, and straight away you have a new friend. And they’ll direct you to a ‘cold one’.

If you have anything on in your area or town, let me know and I’ll take it from there.

Till next week, enjoy the sunshine and travel safely.  Cheers for now, Bill Elliott.  Wilcannia Tourism Association.
