The silence is suddenly broken by the huge roar of a jet propelled engine and the ducks fly off to save their lives, as Donald Campbell and his Bluebird power their way along the lake. Spectators gather excitedly on nearby vantage points, binoculars and cameras in hand. Will this be the day the record is broken? Will this be the run that puts Campbell and Dumbleyung into the record books? Will Lake Dumbleyung end Campbell’s run of bad luck in Australia and help him achieve his dream?
Come along to the Dumbleyung Town Hall on August 3 and relive this excitement and era that did go down in the Dumbleyung history books when the record was achieved.
Meet the “locals” who were there at the time and were so happy to have Campbell, his crew and his beautiful wife Tonia, in town.
Come and share in the excitement of three very special weeks in December 1964 set to a soundtrack of great 60’s music.
Dumbleyung may never see anything like it again.
