The introduction of the musical sign at Nulla, was an important addition to the Slim Dusty experience in Kempsey. The historical value of the memorial sign is very significant, but the power of the ambience of standing in the Nulla, and hearing Slim`s voice and the music of When The Rain Tumbles Down in July echo around those hills, is a very emotional experience. The sign was erected with the generous support of the Department of Environment and Heritage under its Commemoration of Historical Events and Famous Persons Program 2003-4.

Country music legend Slim Dusty spent most of his life on the road, traveling Australia to entertain thousands of adoring fans. But the place he called home is the lush, rolling hinterland of Kempsey, the New South Wales mid-north coast town where he was born - and where his career began. In fact the tug of home was so strong in 2001 that Slim bought back his family’s old dairy farm at Nulla Nulla, about 60km north-west of Kempsey.
