Dear Majors Creek:

This is Tim here, emailing you from Chugiak, Alaska.  One of my best mates in the whole world actually lives in your town.  I just looked at some of the pictures.  Wow.  It is a truly beautiful town, but it looks like the surface of the Sun.   I would like to know when the annual big parties are in Majors Creek so that I can ship you fine people some beer.

I have just been to the Majors Creek Cemetery. I had been told sheep had been in there and there were artificial flowers all over the place.  I decided to see what I could do to tidy it up.  It was an utter mess!!! Most of the flowers were chewed beyond reuse.

The water barrel had been knocked over and a gravestone has suffered the same fate.I did my best trying to match the less damaged flowers to graves, in a lot of cases the jars or pots used to hold the flowers were also smashed., the flowers looked like confetti in same cases.

So if you had flowers on graves at Majors Creek you may need to replace them and bring along a container just in case.Apologies if your flowers are on the wrong grave, I put them back onto the graves they were closest to.

SO PLEASE WHEN YOU VISIT MAKE SURE THE GATE IS CLOSED, THERE IS STOCK IN THE SURROUNDING PADDOCK.

Thanks Gordon

I've contacted a few of the websites and F/book pages that list the MC rec grounds as free camping, and pet friendly and put them right, and that MC is not really a friendly place to stay o/night. I've also asked our club events committee to cancel a club run there next month when we intended to stay o'night as the atmosphere is a bit hostile to visitors. Cheers D

David, 

I do not think you need to go to that extent, I can assure you that your experience is not typical of visits to Majors Creek, and I know of a lot of happy Campers that have been here before you.

Majors Creek NSW. Near Braidwood. Strike this one off your camping list. The rec ground is listed on many websites as free camping, pet friendly, caravans, large rigs, showers, toilets etc. 

It is none of these. 

We have a small pop top and 2 dogs and were setting up after a club meeting this afternoon (11/3/2015) at a local resident intending to have a meal and drinks at the local pub that evening and walk back to the van.

 
BBQ was locked. 

No showers.

There is only 1 female toilet and it was locked - "under renovation". 

There was only 1 male with a urinal (flush not working and floor flooded), and toilet (toilet flushed but floor floods 1/2 across).

We were setting up the pop top when a man and woman in a ute drove up said they were on the rec c'tee. and told us no dogs, no animals, no camping where we were as the area was booked for a political meeting, and there would be children around.  

This was final straw in any case so we hitched up again and left. 

Never to return again or recommend to friends. Never ever. And for ever we will spread the message that Majors Creek NSW is hostile to visotrs!

We are aware of the many web sites out there with incorrect information regarding the facilities here at Majors Creek, so we are creating an Official site with the correct information. It can been seen here: http://recreationreserve.majorscreek.org.au

It was unfortunate that the toilet block was undergoing maintenance at the time you were here, it was noted here : http://recreationreserve.majorscreek.org.au/maintenance-on-toilet-block/

It is also unfortunate that there was a meeting scheduled there tonight, It was listed on the Home page of this web site.

 

I am sorry your time here was not what you expected.

Regards

Gordon

To those that have kept the small town of Major's Creek ticking over all these years, I congratulate you! I also note from reading the forums below that there would appear to be a real community spirit which is rare this day and age. I am the son of Clement Lloyd Keyte, whom had passed away in recent years. My father and the rest of the earlier family were born and raised in Major's Creek - district. I was born in Cairns and now reside in Mackay, Queensland and don't have any real direct connection to the creek other than family heritage. I intend to visit on the coming Australia day week end for a get together that Mick Keyte and others have been organizing and look forward to seeing the old town once again.

Last Saturday saw a group of residents gather at the Majors Creek Cemetery for a working bee that included cleaning around trees, graves, and generally cleaning up. The work done is greatly appreciated and an honour to our early pioneers and residents over the years. Although I was unable to be present due to other commitments. Thank You All.

Photos can be seen on this website.

I will soon be visiting Major's Creek to attend the Folk Festival and anticipate a fun time will be had.  I was hoping that this website might have yielded a little more basic information on what facilities the town has (eg pub, shops, service station, public toilets etc?).

No matter - I'll discover all this in due course and will come prepared, assuming that no such facilities exist.

cheers!

I am after a list of WW1 diggers from Majors Creek.
