Unveiling the plaque at the centenary celebrations for locking the Murray River.

A week has passed since the great celebrations at Blanchetown, when the town took on a buzz as hundreds of people arrived to mark the significant day.

Children greeted the passengers on the PS Marion and the band played. The sun shone, memories were shared and our beloved river was embraced as stories were told of long ago. My book was officially launched and has met with positive feedback! You can order a copy by downloading an order form from this website or contacting me via the link.
