I’m visiting the wonderful country towns – Condobolin, Lake Cargelligo, Tullibigeal and Tottenham – the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri people, explored by John Oxley 1817 and Thomas Mitchell 1836 with squatters/farmers since then. In the far west of Central West region of New South Wales on the Lachlan River.
It’s the locality of Australia’s much loved poem Clancy of the Overflow about sheep droving – written by our national poet Banjo Paterson.
I LOVE being an Australia Day Ambassador and it is a privilege to travel to regional Australia and bring the Australia Day message of one community. I’ll be flying out of Sydney Monday 25th January to Parks, then Bathurst, then driving to Condobolin. Australia is a big country.
