Original Bourke Mosque was on a section I own there.

It looks highly likely that the original Bourke Mosque (rebuilt and now residing in Bourke cemertary) was located on my property in Hope st. The Bourke Mosque would be among the first Mosques built in Australia because of the Afghan Cameliers that transported goods and wool all over the outback in Australia from 1860’s to early 1900’s. At present Bourke has another wave of overseas workers from Indonesia/Malaysia/Vietname to work in the goat abottoir currently so i am thinking wouldnt it be cool if a mosque rebirthed there.
