    Event description

    Bonnie Wingham Scottish Festival

    with Port Bus to Wingham

    Saturday 1st June 2024

    Tour Summary:

    Wingham has had a long history of Scottish influence, beginning with the settling of Scottish immigrants in the early 1800s. They arrived with very few possessions and struggled to establish a way of life in a sometimes-hostile environment, surviving the pneumonic influenza pandemic of 1918-19, severe floods, fires, and devastating droughts. They helped make the townships of Wingham, Mt George, Tinonee, and Gloucester what they are today. Many descendants of these early settlers still reside in the district and are very proud of their Scottish heritage. The Scottish Festival celebrates the lives and culture of these early Australians and welcomes people of all nationalities to join them. Each year the number of participating clans increases. The enthusiasm is still there!
