Hay is the second stop for the Outback Story Generator project. OTYP have a very long history in Hay, in fact we started there 25 years ago and have since run many projects with their young people.

This project in Hay has been very generously supported by Hay Council. Thank you Hay Council!

Some fact about Hay:

  • Hay is 719 Km from Sydney and 409 Km from Melbourne
  • SOME say that the surrounding Hay Plains are the FLATTEST PLACE ON EARTH.
  • The Hay Shire covers an area of 11,348km (sq)
  • According to the 2011 ABS Census, Hay has equal number of Males and Females, 1,478 Each. What are the odds?!
