Dear Families and Friends of Waanyarra,
This is a friendly reminder to encourage you and your friends to join us in the lovely bush setting at the Waanyarra Recreation Area on Sunday 23 March 2014 where you can again listen to the Central Goldfields Concert Band, renew old acquaintances and make new friends who have an interest in Waanyarra and its history and enjoy a good day out. A copy of the Notice sent out last year is attached together with the Newsletter sent out at that time which has further details.
This site is dedicated to the historic “Golden Triangle” locality of Waanyarra, in Central Victoria, Australia.
Information of its history, pioneering families and fabulously rich gold mining past will be found here.
The efforts of the “Families and Friends of Waanyarra” and other interested people to keep the history of the area alive—bring the descendants of the pioneering families together—and restore and maintain the historic Waanyarra cemetery will also be given some coverage.
Genealogists seeking information on people in the area in bygone days may find some vital clues in the cemetery records which have been reconstructed over the past ten years. Please visit the “Unidentified Photos” posts if you think you can help.
We have added a new page to the site where articles of common interest to the Waanyarra / Tarnagulla areas can be posted.
Click on the Tarnagulla activities tab at the top of this page for the latest news.
