Bourke Celebrates Australia Day

The skies were blue, the sausages were hot and the smiles were wide as Bourke residents celebrated Australia Day across the shire. The day began with a Rotary fundraising breakfast at the Wal Mitchell Wharf, attended by a large and enthusiastic crowd. Ambassador Katryna Robinson gave a moving address about the importance of Australians helping each other out, no matter their location or circumstances before the awards were handed out to Bourke’s most worthy citizens.
