Strathbogie Tableland Celebrating Local Community

 


The Strathbogie Tableland is located on an elevated plateau in the Strathbogie Ranges. Two hundred kilometres northeast of Melbourne, it is surrounded by forests, farmland and granite hills. The environment is beautiful with its native bush, birds and animals. Read our local community newsletter, Tableland Talk, to learn about the issues at the heart of our community. While many people have spent their entire lives on the Tableland, others are increasingly choosing to leave city life and move up to live here permanently. Access by car is easy (map). The Hume Freeway runs past Euroa, the nearest town (which can also be reached by bus and train), and the Maroondah Highway offers an alternative route from Melbourne.  Snowfields and rivers are close. Strathbogie remains somewhat hidden away but is a special part of the world. Take a tour of our site and find out why.

About the website

This website has been created by the STAG Communications sub-committee.  The original website was established with funding from the Strathbogie Shire.  It’s a great way for residents and landholders to stay in touch and communicate with each other.  We may be a small and scattered community but, with increasing use of computers and email, this site offers the opportunity to keep informed about events, to comment about Tableland issues, to contribute ideas, to catch up with each other, to buy and sell, and to show off our creativity. Anyone can freely browse all the pages shown on the menu at the top.

About the Area

Strathbogie Tableland is part of the Shire of Strathbogie which also includes the communities of Avenel, Euroa, Longwood, Nagambie, Ruffy and Violet Town. Euroa Gazette is our local newspaper. Tableland Talk is the local newsletter.   Strathbogie Voices is a community organisation, for local political, environmental and social change. Information regarding the new Strathbogie Main Street streetscape can be found here. We welcome and encourage your feedback via email bogieweb@strathbogie.org

    Congratulations to the Australia Day Committee for hosting an extremely successful day on Thursday.
    Members from the entire shire were in attendance under the trees at the hall for a wonderful ceremony. Presentations were made to Strathbogie award winners: Citizen of the year – Helen Peters; Young Citizen of the Year – Lucy Broughton; Junior Citizens of the Year – Ada McKeachie and Charli Hill. Event of the Year- The Winter Solstice (Winter Man) Accepted by Sim Ayres.
    Presentations were also made by the Mayor Amanda McClaren to the Shire recipients and two Citizenships were awarded.
    Guest speaker Richard Rozen spoke of his early years as a Polish Jew during the war urging those present never to forget the children who died and how fortunate he was that he survived and become an Australian.
    At the conclusion Chairperson, Andrew Townsend invited those present to share morning tea and the traditional lamingtons.
    It was a wonderful celebration of local community involvement. Congratulations and thank you.

  7. Reposted on behalf of Mr. McReady.

    Dear Madam I am writing with a request in the hope that your readers might be able to help me. I am trying to track down a niece of mine Ethel McReady, whom I believe may be living up the hills in your area. Many Years have passed since we were in touch but I think I may be her last living Relative and due to failing health would like to catch up with her soon. I understand that she is a Nurse who cares for the elderly. I don’t have a Fixed Address at the moment so perhaps any replies could come to you and I’ll stay in touch that way. Many thanks and best wishes.

    Alfred “Spike” McReady (89)

    PS It has been suggested that I should also place this request on the Strathbogie Wide World Internet but I don’t know how to do this. Could you please oblige?
