The Poets’ precinct in Gunnedah is an area dedicated to Dorothea Mackellar, the author of the famous Australian poem “My Country”. As a town, Gunnedah has a long and proud history and enduring romance with Dorothea Mackellar. The precinct is home to a sculpture of Dorothea; atop her horse, she is immortalised in bronze in Anzac Park. Leading up to the base of the sculpture is Maas Walk, a native garden that was created in honour of Dorothea Mackellar Memorial Society’s founder Mikkie Maas.
Nearby, The Mackellar Centre is dedicated to children’s poetry and all things Dorothea. The centre also features thirty-two watercolour paintings by Jean Isherwood, illustrating the famous “My Country” poem.
