Wanderers are back

May 19 2019

The moment was delayed by a week but today was the day that the Deniliquin Wanderers were back playing Football/Soccer as a standalone club again.

Unfortunately the day didn’t end with a Wanderers victory with Yoogali winning the match 4-1.

While the loss may be disappointing, there is no doubt that the Wanderers are looking forward to next week’s game against Hanwood Football Club which will be the Wanderer’s first home game of the season.

This upcoming game was to be the second home game of the season but as the May 12 match against Yoogali was postponed, this game is now the home opener.

So if you want to catch some sport action on a Sunday then please consider watching the Wanderers in action this Sunday.

Goodbye Riverview Motel

May 18 2019

The Riverview Motel has officially started to join the ranks of the motels and hotels that have ended up going away from sight but not from memory.

Occupying the corner of Butler Street and Wenbern Court, its location was handy especially for summer tourists who only had to walk 250m to get to the McLean Beach or if they just wanted to take a look at the Edward River just take a look at the back.


Anybody who wants a coaster from the Wenbern days currently have the opportunity on eBay to buy one just like the one we have above (not buying from us).

Deniliquin History in Photos is covering the story to its usual standards by taking plenty of pictures from multiple angles to ensure visitors get the full story of its demolition and you can see that below.

The comments are just as interesting as the pictures as many have told of their memories with many starting their married life there and will forever be a source of happiness.

The Motel will live on Google Earth and Google Street View in its 2008, 2012 and 2018 and at the rate Google updates Street View, it may be up for a long time to come.

Movies shown in Deniliquin

Started on May 12 2019

This post will be listed as many films as possible that were shown at Lyceum Theatre, Town Hall Pictures and Regent Theatre.

In brackets is the year the film was shown, It was not uncommon for films to arrive in Deniliquin a year or so after release, one example being Cleopatra that was released in 1912 yet was screened in 1914.

This will take some time so keep on checking back with us and watch the list grow longer and longer.

The founder of Lyceum Pictures and the skating rink, Mr Samuel MacGavin died in March 1918.
