Signs #18 – Historical? – OR Hysterical?!
|Historic Sign, Wentworth, New South Wales|
At what point is an object, action, document or place deemed ‘historic’ – and therefore worthy of recognition and/or preservation?
So I was thrilled to spot the sign on this massive River Red Gum at Wentworth’s Riverbend Caravan Park marking the spot where explorer Charles Sturt celebrated his discovery of the junction of the Murray and Darling rivers! At least here the memory of this historic event has been preserved!!

Isn’t it a relief to know that future generations of Aussie kids will know EXACTLY what happened in this spot??!!
