The graceful Mount Wilga House – the main building of the Mount Wilga Rehabilitation Centre – is the backdrop for the throws events at the first Mount Wilga sports day. The event was organised by the staff of Mt Wilga, led by Kevin Betts and Eileen Perrottet. Nurses, physiotherapists and remedial gymnasts conducted the events, all immaculate in their work uniforms. In this image, 1960 Paralympian Gary Hooper waits as the officials measure his shot put.
