Join Dundullimal and volunteer at NYE Fireworks Party
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.
If you would like to volunteer and nominate a community group to receive a portion of the funds raised, contact Dubbo New Year’s Eve Fire Party committee chair Peter Judd dubbofire[email protected] gmail.com.

The vouchers are a follow-up to the Active Kids voucher scheme helping families get their children involved in sport. 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
