Governor-General and Mrs Hurley visit Kandos Museum
Open Day at KM

Kandos and Kandos Museum are being honoured with a visit by the Governor-General, His Excellency, General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) and Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley.

This is not the first time that the Hurleys have visited Kandos or the museum. Many will recall that a previous vice-regal visit for the centenary celebrations of Kandos in October 2014 when His Excellency was the Governor of NSW, but only just.

The backstory is that His Excellency was invested as the Governor of NSW on 3rd Oct 2014 and his “first vice-regal brass plate” was the re-opening of the Kandos Museum the following day.

“It is an absolute delight that the Governor-General and Mrs Hurley are visiting Kandos and Kandos Museum and have chosen to mark the closing of their vice-regal careers by visiting Kandos Museum.” Said Buzz Sanderson, President Kandos Museum.

“The museum will be hosting the Governor-General and Mrs Hurley, the volunteer organisations of Kandos and Rylstone and the public at the museum with an open day on Tuesday, 18 June with the GG arriving at about 10.15 with tea and scones being served at about 11. This is a great opportunity to showcase Kandos.”

Will there be another brass plate? Without a doubt.

All welcome!

Kandos Museum acknowledges the Dabee people of the Wiradjuri nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which the Museum stands. We pay respect to Aboriginal Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to other First Nations people.
