Yeoval #37

1. Royal Hotel, Yeoval
2.  Banjo Paterson memorial
3. Sculpture Abstract Head of Henry Moore, by Drago Cherina
4. Bikes in trees

Yeoval is a small town (population 400) with a mining history and a railway line now closed.  Its main claim to historic fame is that the bush poet Banjo Paterson lived the first 7 years of his life in the town.  This is celebrated with the annual Mulga Bill Bicycle Festival and bikes in trees mark this event.

A recent addition has been the huge sculpture at Banjo Paterson park, a pleasant picnic spot down by the river.


  1. I did not realise the AB Paterson was a NSWelshman, thinking instead that he was from north of the border. I like the idea of a MBBF, but did not know of its existence. Did you already have this Royal in your collection as I can see from the banner that it has not been updated. Just checking ...

    1. Yes this Royal is already in the collection. The Royals at Cumnock and Yeoval were among my first. I will put a list in the sidebar or the Royal Collection one day ... like to Towns listing.
