SMOKY DAWSON MEMORIAL STATUE

Smoky Dawson

When Smoky Dawson died on 13th February 2008, we all lost a hero and a friend. For more than six decades, Smoky and his wonderful wife Dot made an extra-ordinary contribution to the life of our country. Their contribution to Australian culture, to Country Music and the entertainment industry, to the community or just to their fellow Australians, is remarkable.

With your help, we are planning to erect a life size statue of SMOKY DAWSON in Tamworth, the city he and Dot enjoyed so much and which they helped transform into Australia’s Country Music Capital. The memorial statue will be situated in a prominent position in Tamworth. The sculptor is Tanya Bartlett who created the Light Horse Memorial in Tamworth, the Tommy Smith Statue at Randwick and the statue of Don Bradman in Bowral.

UPDATE - WE ARE PLEASED TO ADVISE THAT SUFFICIENT FUNDS HAVE BEEN RAISED TO ERECT THIS STATUE.

WE WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED OF FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS AND WHEN THE OFFICIAL OPENING WILL BE.
