Australia Day 2011

PICTURESQUE Tynwald Park at New Norfolk was the venue for the main Australia Day observance activities in the Derwent Valley today, although there were simultaneous events at Bushy Park and Maydena. Australia Day Ambassador Nigel Dick gave an interesting address which showed he had learned much local history during his visit. Mayor Martyn Evans then named the recipients of this year’s Derwent Valley Council Australia Day Awards:
