Anzac Day March 1993.
For many many years it has been tradition that Stanhope hold their Anzac Day March not on Anzac Day itself, BUT on the Sunday nearest Anzac Day, so that those had the opportunity to go and march in the Melbourne March could still do so.
...
This particular year we were honoured & privileged to have Sir Edward Weary Dunlop marching with our diggers.
In the photo you can see Sir Edward next to Sam Styler leading the March.
Senior Debutante Ball 1990

Debutante Balls were annually held in Stanhope but this particular year there was a struggle to find any young ones wanting to do it. So they held a Senior Debutante Ball for the parents to be able to do it instead.

Held at the 'Stanhope Memorial Hall'
Train services running through Stanhope.
If only this still existed now!!!!

Mardi Gras


On the 1st January (New Year’s Day) every year The Mardi Gras took place.

      It ran for a considerable amount of years, being the towns major fundraiser for projects (most notably the local swimming pool). It was an institution among locals and locals alike drawing in crowds from far and wide every year.

    With rides and games for the kids, stalls for the adults, the parade, the spinning wheel raffles, tiny tot contests among others it was a fun filled evening for the whole family!

Unfortunately the Mardi Gras is now just a memory.
