Lennie's Ride

Lennie Gwyther, a nine-year-old son of a farmer, rode his pony, Ginger Mick, 600 miles from Leongatha in the Gippsland region of Victoria to Sydney to witness for himself the celebratory opening of the Harbour Bridge on Saturday 19th March 1932. During his journey, newspaper reports of his progress made him so famous that he was invited to take part in the Grand Procession after the official opening.Lennie's Ride

The stuff of legends, Lennie's Ride is the story based on family records of a remarkable young Australian.

Lennie's Ride is the result of a close partnership between Mary's long time friend Margaret Knowlden and Marion Wilcocks, her sister in law, who lives in England.
