Bingara, is in north western New South Wales, within Gwydir Council Shire.
It is home to the famous Roxy Theatre, Peters (Roxy) Cafe, Roxy Museum. and Roxy Tourist Information Centre.
The story of how this "complex" came to be built is brilliantly told in Peter Prineas' book, Katsehamos and the Great Idea
The buffer map is based on 90 km zones (approx 1 hours driving) from the town of Bingara.
It was kindly drawn up for us by GIS Officer, Danielle Perrett of Gwydir Council.
As you can see all MAJOR cities of Kytherian population Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra are within the 7 hour zone.
The Kytherian Association of Australia (KAA) has never collated data re: Kytherians / Greeks living within zones 1-6.
The Roxy Museum Comm will certainly be making every endeavour to collate this data over the next year +. I am certain that KAA Comm will assist in every possible way. Such a data base would "lengthen" the "reach" of the KAA.
If you, or someone you know of, is a Kytherian / Greek living in zones 1-6 please advise.
Email George C Poulos
We have found in particular that Kytherians / Greeks living within zones 1 & 2 & 3 will go out of there way to travel to Bingara - if they are informed that an event is on there.
Once the very attractive Information Centre is completed (March-April 2011) - (incidentally it is the site of Dr Archie Kalokerinos's surgery during his practice in Bingara) - the Centre will be selling all Kytherian World Heritage Fund books there.
In the meantime if you have information of Kytherians / Greeks living in places like Dubbo, Orange, Bathurst, Tweed Heads, Katoomba, Gold Coast etc etc - with email addresses - please pass them onto George C Poulos - and we will start this more comprehensive data base.
There are numerous entries and photographs about the Roxy "complex" at Bingara on the www.kythera-family.net website. The main web pages are listed below.
