Hunter Valley bushwalk
Leichhardt's early travels around Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, in 1842-43, have been overshadowed by his great exploit across northern Australia. You can revisit the sites and scenes of his early explorations in Mt Royal National Park, about 50km north of Singleton. Callicoma Eco-cabins and local historian/naturalist Martin Fallding invite visitors to come for a walk in Ludwig's footsteps, through world heritage forest in the spectacular Barrington Tops wilderness region. Download the informative brochure (A4, 2pp, 550kb) here.


Dawson River Festival

Fun-filled Spring days of activities rolled through the Dawson River towns of Taroom, Theodore, Moura and Baralaba during September 2013. Taroom's turn is from Thursday 26th to Sunday 29th.

There's a definite Leichhardt theme  this year, along the river  named by the explorer almost 170 years ago. Art, photography, fashion, horseracing, golf, bowls and outdoor sports for kids of all ages   complement the festival markets on the Sunday.

An easy six-hour drive from Brisbane, on the Warrego and Leichhardt Highways, in LeichhardtLand!

... and the 'dunny run' ... no??
You obviously missed the highlight of the Cecil Plains social calendar during the 160th anniversary events in 2004-5. The energetic team at the local Bush Nursing Service used to make quite a (long-ish) weekend of it, once a year ~ all for a good cause (or three) of course. Amazing how local history, wine, campfires and get-togethers can keep history alive.
