Banjo Paterson: More than a Poet Exhibition

Home  -  Things to doArts & Culture

One of Australia's most famous sons, Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson, was born in Orange, before returning with his parents to the family property Buckinbah, at Yeoval. This lone outpost was Banjo's childhood , and where he met so many characters of the day and heard so many bush stories around the fire at night. Many of which were the inspiration for his own tales.

It was at Buckinbah that travellers heading in both directions called in to freshen up supplies at the Buckinbah Stores, buy fresh meat, or purchase a new horse or bullock. Remembering that in the days of Paterson's childhood, all transport was reliant on beasts of burden whether ridden or pulling a vehicle.

The exciting news from Cabonne Countrywide is that as part of their birthday celebrations, Cabonne Countrywide has opened an extensive new exhibition in Yeoval called 'Banjo Paterson: More than a Poet' Exhibition.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
