Demolition continues

May 31 2019

The former Riverview Motel continues to fade into oblivion as Murray Constructions P/L continues on with their work.

Below are comparisons between the Motel standing in 2008 and the current state of demolition in 2019.


In this now and then, below in 2019 you see no buildings behind the fence but in the 2008 image below you do.


A little bit further up is the area presented in the two pictures below.


Above the garden is gone, check out the Kevin Mack sign on the fence, he came second in polling for the seat of Farrer in the 2019 Federal Election.

Below is the Motel in all it’s glory, it is always nice to look back on Google Earth to see how things were.

Napier Street works well underway

May 27 2019

Work on Napier Street is well underway and opinions are mixed on this action.

Some wish that the money spent on Napier Street was spent on something else, some wish that the rural street remains looking like a rural street and not some fancy suburban estate and some think the work is absolutely needed in these challenging times.

The ERC has been busy in Deniliquin with a number of projects started or completed in the last twelve months and it will be interesting to see if the hard work translates into votes in 2020.


As you can see the two above pictures are from the the Cressy Street side of the works, the fences are up and the road is largely dug up.


The above two images are taken from the Edwards Street side of the work and you can see more detail of the road and workers hard at work.

Businesses are still open as the footpaths aren’t blocked off so nobody needs to worry about the prospect of not being able to visit banks and other businesses.

We’ll keep readers updated on how the work is progressing over time.

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.
