In Detail

The importance of photographs as historical memorabilia often goes beyond the people represented in the images to depict a period in our country’s history. As the last generation of cattlemen recall distant memories of dusty stockyards, saddle sheds, wet seasons, and those who passed before them, this exhibition celebrates their lives through the photographic image. 

Opening event

Friday 20 July at 6pm

Presented by the Berndt Museum, with photographs by Colin Russ, Andreas Lommel and others.
