One of Bourke’s well-known residents is returning to her hometown to take up a new position with the Bourke Shire Council.

Melanie Milgate will start in her new role as Economic Development Manager in early September and said she was thrilled to be coming home to help shape the future of the town.

“I’m very excited to be heading home,” Mel said. “The Bourke Council has allowed me the opportunity to take on the role and I am really looking forward to working alongside those already involved in the continued growth of the Shire.

“I have lived in Tamworth for almost five years after I left Outback Mornings on 2WEB.”
