Virtual Mayor of Goonengerry

This may sound a bit like big brother but here is an idea: If Goonengerry folks express their opinions on this site, including voting in the poles and signing petitions it would be like having our own Mayor. Please put forward your thoughts on this, and more imporantly bring on issues for us to express our opinions on.

Weather Report

17th of May: G'day Goonengerry. Just checked the rain gauge and I can report that we have had 21 mm of rain. I am not sure when I emptied the gauge last but you can safely say that is how much rain we have had over the last four days. If anyone is interested in reporting the weather please come out of the rain and put forward your name.

There are a number of opinions on the origin and meaning of the word Goonengerry.

  1. it is an aboriginal word that means where the wind meets the wind.
  2. something to do with Magpies and the sound they make.

Let us know if you have further information on this important historical mystery.
