Coo-ee March Gallery

Relive the story of the original Coo-ee March depicting the journey of 35 men who marched from Gilgandra to Sydney in 1915 to attract recruits for service in WWI.

The Coo-ee March Gallery includes artefacts of national significance including the Union Jack Flag carried by the Marchers. A recent addition to the museum display is the Coo-ee Honour Wall, a research project completed by volunteers from Gilgandra Museum and Historical Society.

The Coo-ee Honour Wall provides a poignant insight into the lives of the men who marched from Gilgandra to Sydney to volunteer for service in WWI. A must see for historians and those with an interest in Australian Military history.
