Clancy of the Overflow


Named after Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the fifth governor of NSW (1810 to 1821) the Lachlan River runs east to west through Forbes. Australian schoolchildren know it from the iconic Aussie poem "Clancy of the Overflow" by Banjo Paterson. NOTAM: The plains around the Lachlan River are so flat that hills of 500 feet stand out starkly and are useful aids to navigation. Where there is no terrain relief at all, look for junctions of straight lines such as road and rail intersections.
