Dave & Mabel at Peak Hill, NSW by 


Imagine my surprise, driving up the Newell Highway and seeing this pair of iconic Aussie characters sitting in the park on the main street of Peak Hill, between Parkes & Dubbo. I didn’t have time to stop on my way through from Victoria to Queensland but made a note to stop on the way back, which I definitely did.
I just wonder how many towns could have these characters sitting in the main street without vandals destroying them.

Photography & travel are my passions. I’m a member of the Australian Photographic Society and have competed and also judged at many National Photographic Exhibitions and was also invited to judge at an International Photographic competition in Swansea, Wales in 2006. My choice of camera is Olympus; currently I have an E410 and E520 with several lenses. I keep a Canon Ixus in the side pocket of my handbag for those times when something worth photographing unexpectedly pops up.

    What a nice photo :) I have never met them…..are they famous people?

  • Thanks Ellen, “Dad & Dave” was an old radio show in Australia many decades ago. Mabel was the daughter, and Dave was the son of “Dad & Mum” . I think this show can probably still be heard on some radio stations in the ‘countryside’ just as a bit of nostalgia. Peake Hill is definitely in the countryside of New South Wales. :0)
