I'm happy to announce that Carlene and I are off to Longreach (that's in Western Queensland) at the beginning of next month! The Royal Flying Doctor Service is having a Gallery Opening at The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame on May 5th. Copies of our book John Dixon, Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor will be available for sale, with yours truly signing and talking about the volume to anyone who wil listen! We are also in the process of negotiating the inclusion of another of John Dixon's original Air Hawk artworks to be included in the Exhibition. Here's the one we have selected...
Also on the agenda that weekend is the 22nd Anniversary of the annual Drover's Reunion at The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame, with "highlights of the weekend [including] Billy Tea and Damper". Other items on the agenda will be "yarn telling, bush poetry, singing" and an Outback Skills Sessions for kids "along with many more exciting activities for all". For more information on the Event, here's a link explaining a little more about the festivities. If you have the opportunity to be there, please make yourself known to us and say 'G'Day!' - we'll be only too happy to chat to you!
