Flashback: February 9, 1983 | PHOTOS

What do you remember about what was happening in February 1983? Or were you not around yet?

Take a walk down memory lane with the West Coast Sentinel to either remember this week 35 years ago, or learn about what was happening for the first time.

The Port of Thevenard was being kept busy with the arrival of ships from the Soviet Union and India, as well ships with destinations closer to home at Sydney and Brisbane.

Ceduna’s newest school, Crossways Lutheran School, was opened that week and has remained a valued place for education.

Far West men’s and women’s team competed in basketball championships against teams from across the state, the Ceduna Sailing Club hosted its club championships, and there was action on the track at the Ceduna Races.
