Town Meeting

Town meeting with Western Lands and Crown Lands in White Cliffs. The meeting held Tuesday 11/10/16 at the White Cliffs Hall was a good meeting and met the needs of the people most seem happy with the outcome. We have no lease still, and are living here as a guest of the Government. We have been told we will get a new lease in 12 to 18mth's (that was the only bad part of the meeting).


Kevin Humphries, Member for Barwon's office.
This is part of an email sent to me by Kevin Humphries Office last night

Crown Lands and the Native Title division will confirm that no one will be disadvantaged and no one will need to move. This issue has been triggered by the recent Native Title Declaration (Federal Court). Crown Lands, on behalf of the government will lead the negotiations in order to ensure licence security both now and into the future. They just need to agree on a methodology which will be explained at the meeting. (held today Tuesday 11th Oct)

The only bad part of all this the people of White Cliffs did nothing wrong. This whole problem was started by Native Title. The way this happen is wrong and needs to be fixed. The law needs to be fixed to stop a group canceling the lease of normal Australian's (RexD the website)

The story of White Cliffs New South Wales.
White Cliffs is a small town in outback New South Wales in Australia, in Central Darling Shire. White Cliffs is around 255 km northeast of Broken Hill, 93 km north of Wilcannia. At the 2006 census, White Cliffs had a population of 119. The primary school opened in 1895, and has operated continuously since then. White Cliffs was one of the many places visited by Bill Bryson in research for the book In a Sunburned Country

Opal fields at White Cliffs, The town was established in the late 19th century when opal was discovered. Opal has been mined ever since. The first Australian opal was found 20 years before in Queensland in 1872, when a party of kangaroo hunters were operating in the White Cliffs area. One of them, who had left the party to track down a wounded kangaroo over some low stony hills, picked up a pretty stone which appealed to him. When taking back the stone, they suspected it could be opal which the local jeweller confirmed. He advised to get as much opal as possible since this could be more profitable than kangaroo hunting. When the group filed a claim, opal had not yet been listed under gemstones, and it was decided to file the claim under the "Gold Mining Act"

Many of the residents live underground, using mining equipment to dig extensive homes in the hillside to avoid the intense heat outside. Cricketer Bill O'Reilly was born in White Cliffs, the son of the first school teacher.

From a visitor to White Cliffs New South Wales

Just a short note to the people of White Cliffs we drove in to your little town on Friday, just another town but it is not just another town it is full of wonderful people that just wanted to mix with visitors to town, we stayed at the caravan park, it's clean and a nice park.

Red Earth and the Underground Motel are a must see in White Cliffs the Den and the Bottle Shop.

Everyone wanted to talk with us at the Hotel. We will return to White Cliffs next year and stay a week, after three days I felt like a local.

Thank you.
Wendy and John Queensland
