The township of The Rock was expected to fill this synopsis of the Olympic Hwy journey; and while The Rock had a War Memorial of some stature and a number of churches, there was not a trading hotel or a museum or sign that signifies same in the town. It was noted that The Rock was, not surprisingly a dormitory suburb of Wagga Wagga.
Now, Uranquinty, a very small community centre met the Bustout criteria for a town synopsis.
The recent historic past with re-settlement programs has for all time cemented Uranquinty place in Australian history. Urainquinty has a really great story to tell, and on the roadside of this small town does the story justice.
The Uranquinty Migrant Centre was established as a result of the Displaced Persons Immigration Scheme at the end of the Second World War. Uranquinty was only one of such places chosen to receive displaced people still in camps within Germany, Austria and France.
Uranquinty deserves a researched visit and time by travelers.
