2021 is going to be landmark year for Red Cliffs. Over Melbourne Cup weekend the town will celebrate its centenary birthday and the committee overseeing the celebrations are urging us all to “get Reddy” for one heck of a party. Committee members Helen Petschel and her husband, Bob Walton, chatted with Danielle Wilcock about the town’s history, giving us an insight to what we can expect from the four day festivities.
IN 1920, surveys of the Red Cliffs area began. Alfred Kenyon was the superintendent of the development. Without his foresight and acute engineering and agriculture knowledge, Red Cliffs might never have been established nor even selected for settlement.
