Tim there are two, 150 yr celebrations happening at Moliagul. The first one is on Sat 2nd Feb at the Moliagul recreation / camping ground, right next to the Moliagul hotel. Starting about 11am. This is a picnic type occasion with speeches from the Deason family (direct descendent of one of the finders of the nugget). The PMAV will there will nugget displays, including a replica of the Welcome Stranger. For more info on that one go to   https://www.facebook.com/groups/1773551719396612/  

The other celebration is happening on the day of the anniversary of the finding of the Welcome Stranger. This will happen on the 5th Feb starting at the Welcome Stranger monument, Moliagul. This is being put on by the Dunolly Historical Society and John Tully. Starting at 10 am. This will be a very interesting event as there will be a walk of the area and an re-enactment of the photos taken of the finding. https://scontent.fmel8-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/50049709_2301118689901217_2930119967430934528_n.jpg?_nc_cat=104&_nc_ht=scontent.fmel8-1.fna&oh=8c04213a2e81d07c7f3f1fd2b074c916&oe=5CF89FEA
