CALENDAR OF EVENTS

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Located on the Williams River. The town dates from 1898 and the old hotel that is still standing, originates from around 1900. The hotel was substantially renovated in 1921. In fact the hotel and an old church, plus one or two houses, are about all there is today.

 

St. Boniface Anglican church was constructed in 1955-6 and is made from local stone carted to the site by church members. It is reported that the church cost 4,600 pounds which was a substantial amount.

 

HISTORY

 

Settlement in the area dates from the 1830s and continued slowly until the turn of the century. The town site was gazetted in 1907 and the name originates from a nearby water source discovered by Alfred Hillman. The name is thought to be of Aboriginal origin but the meaning is not known.

 

A tragedy occurred in December 1886 when Ernest William Lilley (aged 7) and a friend were playing near a pool in the river. Ernest fell in and quickly got into trouble. His friend ran to the nearby Haynes homestead for help and Mrs. Haynes came running back with him and plunged in to try and save the drowning child. She was soon in trouble as well and sadly both she and Ernest drowned.

 

After many years without a general store, one was re-opened by John Hogan in 1953.
