Buckinbah Park was named after the property ‘Buckinbah’ Station located on the edge of the Yeoval township that was the first home to A B Banjo Paterson.
Yeoval Historical Society purchased the adjoining park land to the Yeoval Historical Museum from Cabonne Council in 2006 with the vision of developing a welcoming park for the community and visitors to Yeoval.
Within Buckinbah Park found on the corner of Forbes Street and Lachlan Street, Yeoval you will find a beautiful range of tree plantation, sturdy country log table and seating, and Yeoval metal art sculptures throughout the park. Public toilets are located opposite the park beside the Yeoval Memorial Hall.
Banjo Patterson Bush Park and Henry Moore sculpture of Yeoval are a short 500m north down Forbes Street
Be sure to look through the garden and surrounding fences of the Buckinbah park and you will find our friendly emus, sheep and drover.
Throughout Buckinbah Park are trees planted on Tree Planting Days of past; these trees have been kindly donated and planted in the park by: Mrs Rosamund Campbell, Banjo Paterson’s granddaughter, the AJC, the Royal Agricultural Society, Mrs Grace Sparkes, the O’Halloran Family, the Law Society of NSW and another by the past president of the Law Society, Mr Gordon Salier.
The Yeoval Historical Society would like to thank the community for the support and donations in making the vision of the Buckinbah Park possible. A special thank you to local residents Mr & Mrs Les Hunter for their kind donation, one of the oldest dwellings in the Yeoval district, providing the park and Historical Museum a shelter shed. Our local handyman Mr Vic Kanovas greatly provided his skills in building the park’s log table & seats.
