'Oops we missed it'.
Did you know that Charleville is turning 153 this year, any excuse for a party so we will celebrate their 150th + birthday. There will be everything from a Greek themed luncheon, followed by a book launch of the life of the incredible Harry Corones. Heinemann’s, local bakery, will be holding a Bakery championship; you can only imagine what that entails. There will be a Bilby catching competition (toys of course) followed by a Street Parade with floats and multicultural food stalls.

The Morven races are on Saturday with transport operating. There will be town tours available plus Top Secret WWII tours, the Cosmos Centre and Observatory will be also open. Saturday night is the annual 'Fur Ball' with a 'Big Birthday' theme and a big Birthday cake to match. Looking forward to see who jumps out of it.

Sunday is National Bilby Day, the only day an Australian animal has its own gazetted special day. Head to the Bilby Experience at the Charleville Railway Station and enjoy breakfast and spend some time learning about these unique animals. Lastly the Golf Club are hosting a Bilby Golf Funday for all.
