Paul Wenz and his Australian-born wife Hettie Dunne have already been honoured in Forbes: a housing estate and park are named for Paul and a street is named for Hettie. The Forbes & District Historical Museum has erected a bronze plaque commemorating the couple in Paul Wenz Park.

People in the Wenz network see the acknowledgement Paul Wenz is now receiving in Reims as yet another step towards forging strong cultural links between the city in which the writer was born and Forbes Shire where he spent some of the most creative years of his life.
