AT around midnight tonight in
Australia, Kate Foran will be
making her way to the Galli-
poli Campaign Historical Site
in Turkey just on dusk.
Most of the visitors will move
from their long wait at Mimosa Park
down to Anzac Cove where they will
carry out their vigil until 5.30am on
One hundred years ago to the day,
more than 20,000 Australians, New
Zealanders and servicemen from
other allied countries went ashore
at the Gallipoli Peninsula.
Many more would soon follow
in their footsteps including Kate’s
“I entered the ballot but was unsuc-
cessful and as fate would have it, by
the grace of social media, I met up
with Julie Turner who happened to
have a spare ballot spot,” Kate said.
“Julie did not want to go to Gal-
lipoli alone and was going to donate
her double pass to her local RSL in
Darwin but found out that the passes
were non transferrable.
“She asked me to join her on the
voyage and of course I said yes.”
For Kate and many like her on the
beach at Anzac Cove, emotions will
be running high as they recall what
would have been the final moments
of relatives on that fateful day in
“My great uncle Donny enlisted
and my grandfather, his brother,
followed suit of course which is
such a common story of the time,”
“Uncle Donny was actually there
at the first landing on day one and
100 years later I will be there too.
“He was wounded on that first
assault and kept fighting for four
hours before being evacuated to
Egypt where he recovered, only to
be sent straight back to Gallipoli
when deemed fit.”
Both Kate’s relatives survived Gal-
lipoli and went on to fight in France
and returned home to Australia to
resume their lives after the war
ended in 1918.
Kate will be wearing three replica
medals belonging to her grandfather
at the dawn service at Gallipoli

The plate designs explore what disabil-
ity means to people living in this region
and is a great example of how art is being
used to build awareness of the scheme.
Once all of the plates are complete they
will be exhibited at this year’s Festival.
The National Disability Insurance
Agency has been working with the local
community to raise awareness, engage
with local providers and support partici-
pants to access the scheme.
Mr Fifield said a solid foundation is
being laid for the NDIS trial sites, with
more than 11,000 participants receiving
individualised support plans to date.
Senator launches festival artwork
TENNANT Creek’s newest business venture
had its official opening last Friday evening
when “Art Buoy”, a multi-disciplinary creative
space run by local artist and musician Alicia
Scobie, held a shop-warming party to mark
“We had a great roll up of about 40 like-minded souls
who came to support this new idea,” Alicia said.
“There was food and refreshments available and we
received a lot of encouragement from all of the guests.”
So successful has it been, that most of the positions for
music tuition and art classes have already been filled.
“Tim and I will be offering music classes for a wide
variety of instruments such as guitar, bass, woodwind,
brass, keyboards and drums so anyone interested in
tuition needs to get in quick or they may have to wait
for vacancies to become available,” Alicia said.
“My art classes are based on a five-week rotation,
eight people to a class.
“Printmaking is the first genre I am tackling but wa-
tercolour, acrylic and even life drawing are planned
“I am also interested in conducting private lessons for
budding young artists on weekends but that will depend
on parents expressing a need for this type of tuition.”
Alicia said she hoped Art Buoy could engage and
encourage the community to take part in creative and
performing arts, whether it be through art classes, at-
tending exhibition openings, putting on their own show
through gallery space or learning an instrument.
