The other famous bush poet, Banjo Paterson, is not remembered with any full-sized bronze statues, but there are plenty of other memorials to him in different places in NSW.
Banjo Paterson Park in Yass, which we featured in a previous blog, has a bust of the poet and there is another on the outskirts of Orange. Banjo Paterson was born at Narrambla Homestead on 17 February 1864. There is now a small park on the Ophir Rd at the former site of the property.
An obelisk in the small park has a quote from Banjo’s poem, Clancy of the Overflow.
“And he sees the vision splendid
Of the sunlit plains extended
And at night the wondrous glory
Of the everlasting stars”
