Festival Walk of Fame

To commemorate the 50th Henry Lawson Festival of Arts in 2007, plaques honouring each official guest were laid in the Main Street footpaths. The plaques are randomly placed on both sides of the street. The first plaque is on the corner of the Mid Western Highway and Main Street and the remainder are placed as per the adjoining map. Consult the list on the reverse side of this pamphlet for the guest’s names and the year they attended the festival. If you require further information a map and brochures are available to download below.
