Out And About In Tarnagulla weekend  is conducted each year under the auspicies of the Shire of Loddon.
The historic Victoria Theatre is once again the venue for our history exhibition, and our display has become a very popular focal point for both family historians and those with an interest in Tarnagulla's past.
I hope that by now you all have the event firmly marked in your diaries, and we look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones over the October weekend.
As you know, we're always on the lookout for anything associated with Tarnagulla's history. If you have something you can share with us, then please bring it along.
As a special feature this year, Mary Balle is coming out from the USA with copies of her new book, From Ireland to Oz. Mary has a special connection with Tarnagulla. She is a great-great niece of one of Tarnagulla's first hotel-keepers, Kate Kirwan. The Rising Sun Hotel was initially licenced by Kate and her husband in 1854, followed by the Halfway Hotel near the cemetery, and finally the old Maidentown Hotel at Llanelly. Mary has spent a lot of time in the Tarnagulla district over the years in researching her family's history, and I'm sure her new book will make a very welcome addition to Tarnagulla's historical records - as well as being a ripping good read. I know you will all make Mary welcome.
