McLeod’s Daughters actor, Zoe Naylor, with fellow actor husband Aaron Jeffery and the couple’s children.
One of Australian television’s most-loved daughters will be spending this long weekend in Gilgandra as the town’s Australia Day Ambassador.
Acting Mayor Ash Walker, said he was delighted that former McLeod’s Daughter star, actor Zoe Naylor had taken the time to join Gilgandra for the celebration.
“Australia Day is such a special community day and an opportunity to showcase what’s great about Gilgandra especially following what has been a challenging twelve months for everyone,” said Cr Walker.
“We all have different stories to share about this country and Australia Day is an opportunity to remember how fortunate we are to live together here in Australia. I know that Gilgandra will put on a memorable day and having Zoe here to share her story just makes it all the more special.”
Council will also be officially opening the upgraded Peter Veness Skate Park in Hunter Park directly following the Australia Day celebrations.
“The Peter Veness Skate Park has recently undergone some welcomed upgrades thanks to funding through the Stronger Country Communities program to improve the facility and enhance user experience,” Cr Walker said.
It is a wonderful attraction for our local youth and it’s been great to see the number of users enjoying the new design recently and showing off their skills.”
