Hello Laura,

From what I can find the Curdimurka Ball is no longer held. The Beltana Ball took its place but I can't find any references to whether that is still going either.

These websites might be interesting.

It's my understanding that the ball has been discontinued for some years.

This apparently is due to the Govt requirements of facilities about sewage being so expensive and difficult to manage that it killed the event off.

Cheers

Hey, bet you're glad you are not trying to follow your old mate's footsteps now - unless you had a boat. Ha ha.

Hi Ruth & Ian,

Heading off again soon with 2 mates + esky to East Kimberley, Roper River, Barkly areas for a month. In that time I will be more closely inspecting the region from Newcastle Waters to Mataranka, looking at Overland Telegraph stuff, railway stuff, and of course, the little bloke - John McDouall Stuart.

I have been watching the rainfalls for those regions on Elders weather site - looks like there will be plenty of that wet stuff up there also.

Hoping to charter a flight over the Kallakoopah/Warburton in a week or so to inspect what passed by you a few weeks ago.

Cheers

Oh Rick, great trip - couldn't imagine you going on a trip without 'the little bloke'.
You will thoroughly enjoy the charter - beautiful colours - would be even better with a bit of rain in that area.
Have a great trip...... thinking of you out there exploring.
Ian's just headed out with the flood boat - puts it in at the grid on the eastern end of town.

PLI is what killed off Curdi. The last ball was 2000.

Cheers,
