    Point of interest for your records: Our local Historian, one Joan Fenton, states, that the name of Wyoming, our suburb north of Gosford, on the Central Coast of New South Wales, on the east coast of Australia, about 100 kms / 60+ miles north of Sydney; was given by one Frederick Augustus Hely. Chosen, because this was his favourite poem.
