Dubbo Photo News - - Emergency Issues - By DARCEE NIXON

DUN­DUL­LI­MAL Dubbo Prop­erty Co­or­di­na­tor Karen Ha­gan and her hus­band Sean Ha­gan, who is also a Dun­dul­li­mal vol­un­teer, have put their hands up to help run Dubbo’s up­com­ing New Year’s Eve Fire­works Party.

They will both be work­ing at one of the gates and are thrilled to ini­ti­ate the com­ple­men­tary con­tri­bu­tion be­tween Dubbo’s big­gest new year cel­e­bra­tion and the Dun­dul­li­mal Dubbo Sup­port Crew Inc.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to be in­volved and the event is so well or­gan­ised,” Ms Ha­gan told

“It’s a re­ally im­por­tant com­mu­nity event to bring ev­ery­one to­gether. It’s im­por­tant eco­nom­i­cally for Dubbo as well, so it’s good to pitch in and help out,” she added.

“The share of funds that the Sup­port Crew will re­ceive will go to­wards the main­te­nance of the Dun­dul­li­mal site,” Pres­i­dent of Dun­dul­li­mal Dubbo Sup­port Crew Inc. Sis Hon­ner said.

“Dun­dul­li­mal was here be­fore Dubbo was gazetted a vil­lage in 1849, it’s pre­serv­ing our his­tory,” she added.

And it’s the ded­i­ca­tion of volunteers and con­tri­bu­tions from the com­mu­nity and or­gan­i­sa­tions such as this that con­tinue to up­hold the Na­tional Trust Site’s unique charm and ar­chi­tec­ture. The Dun­dul­li­mal homestead is open to the pub­lic from 11am3pm Tues­day to Satur­day with vis­i­tors wel­come to drop in, how­ever book­ings are rec­om­mended for larger groups.

Other vol­un­teer groups that will be ben­e­fit­ting from Dubbo New Year’s Eve Fire­works Party in­clude the VRA, Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice, SES, Mac­quarie Home­s­tay, Girl Guides, Golden West Holden Own­ers Club and ORISCON.

The Golden West Holden Own­ers Club will be run­ning the al­ways pop­u­lar Mo­tor Show.

A huge anamor­phic paint­ing sym­bol­is­ing hope and uni­fi­ca­tion has been com­pleted on a South Korean dam lo­cated near its north­ern neigh­bours. The 3D-look­ing paint­ing stretches across 4775.7 square me­tres of con­crete on the Peace Dam lo­cated on the Bukhan River. The paint­ing cov­ers al­most the same sur­face area as four Olympic-sized swim­ming pools, and took a team of painters al­most two months to com­plete. PHOTO: GUIN­NESS WORLD RECORDS
