Welcome to the official website for Wellington's bicentenary celebrations.
2017 is sure to be a big year for this great town as on August 18, it celebrates 200 years since John Oxley and his crew first crossed into a beautiful glen he named Wellington after the "Iron Duke" of Wellington who had defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo two years before.
Do you have photos of you, your family or friends in Wellington.
We would love to include them as part of our bicentenary celebrations.
Our Bicentenary calendar is now available for sale. For just $15 this calendar contains a timeline of Wellington's history as well as events held throughout the year.
The calendars are available for sale at the Wellington Visitor Information Centre, Wellington Caves, Wellington Newsagency, Stuart Town RTC, Cactus Cafe and Wellington Golf Club.
