Balldale: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Avro Anson Landing Site

Brocklesby's main claim to fame occurred on Sunday morning 29 September 1940, when two Avro Anson training planes were involved in a mid-air collision over Brocklesby. The planes were joined together piggy back style, with the impact of the top machine crushing the cockpit of the lower, leaving the landing gear untouched and the engine still running full throttle. Pilot Jack Hewson and observers Hugh Fraser and Ian Sinclair ejected, leaving pilot Len Fuller to use his skills to steer the planes away from the town to a clear paddock, where the planes were landed without causing any more damage. This extraordinary feat made headlines in newspapers worldwide. A plaque relaying the historic story is situated at the site on Howlong Goombargana Road Brocklesby.

Howlong Historic Trail

The Howlong Historic Trail consists of 28 locations and is a 13.3 kilometre circuit.

The history of Howlong dates back to 1836 when Major Thomas Mitchell established his camp on the southern bank of the river. Crossing to the northern side he observed gig wheel tracks where white settlers had ventured before. The town was surveyed in its present formation in 1856 with ten streets from east to west and ten streets from north to south, bounded by the Black Swan anabranch of the Murray River.

A detail map and information can be collected from the Howlong Community Resource Centre or from the Corowa Visitor Information Centre.
