Celebrating Beverley McFarlane, who was crowned “Miss Victoria” in 1959.

Beverley at the time was a popular Usherette at The Grove Theatre Yarrawonga. Here she is pictured in front of the iconic open air theatre.

It’s been 50 years since Miss Victoria 1959 received her welcome home reception at Yarrawonga/Mulwala. Beverley McFarlane (now Beverley Long) was crowned Miss Victoria on July 29th, 1959. A couple of days later, Beverley returned home to Yarrawonga to what could be described as a hero’s welcome with 1,000 people cheering as she arrived at the train station. Beverly was then driven to the Yarrawonga Shire Hall behind a cavalcade of marching girls and the local brass band. Fifty years on the day has been re-enacted, and again there was much celebration.

This event has been immortalized at the Pioneer Museum at Mulwala, with a display of artifacts & a short video detailing the history of the event. The event which put Yarrawonga on the map. The YARRAWONGA – MULWALA PIONEER MUSEUM @ 151 Melbourne Street, Mulwala, NSW – Opening times Wed to Sun 1.00pm to 4.30pm … Photo courtesy of Alex & Ann Sloane –
