Chaucer Brigade Station Opening


This is a great day for the little Chaucer Community with the opening of the new brigade station. The small community of Chaucer is located on the Belubula Way around 7klms from Canowindra.

The Chaucer Brigade was formed during the late 1950’s by the local farming community and the, then Waugoola Shire Council.
