Well this makes sense.
Easier on the shearer.
Easier on the stock.
What’s the AWU think about this?
Those old shearing sheds get very hot in Summer.
All sorts of health risks.
What a stunning photo!
Try and stay cool today also, love the photo.
Great thinking 99. BTW love the photo.
Great idea 👏🏻
Good thinking Maxwell Smart quite often on bright moonlit nights I would walk my sheep back to their paddocks and be finished by daylight. Found the sheep were far better behaved too and walked at a very nice even pace. Far less stressful for everyone, my liver in particular. Very rarely had to put the dawg out either
Awesome photo. 👍
Beat the heat but how were the bugs
Dave Whillock next set up on the list?!
Cracking Photo Liz
Yes I remember back when was at Pine Camp Station driving in the mob it was bloody hot sheep heading to every shaded tree magpies would fly from the tree when the sheep arrived some just dropped from the sky I remember having hanky over your nose so you could breathe from the heat and wind but job had to be done to get them shed for sheering
How about #theSerenity of a billabong campsite along the Darling River? There are a load of great locations to set up camp for wonderful scenery and memorable experiences on the #DarlingRiverRun. This photo was taken during sunset at one of the billabong campsites located at Trilby Station, Louth.
We parked our van at the weir at Tilpa for a night many years ago. There would have been 60 odd pelicans fishing there. It was a great evening sitting beside our fire watching them and the other birds all come in for evening drinks
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Milparinka recently
SO many changes!! When I last visited (about 2009), there was just the old buildi gs, a closed hotel and NO signage or infrastructure like now!! Keen to revisit!
Just spent a couple of days here & a huge amount of work has been done
Our first visit was back in 2001. Was like a ghost town then
Definitely worth a visit & stay a couple of days
Good Pub & CP is amazing with friendly managers 👍😀
Volunteered at the Heritage centr in Sep 2015. Visited again earlier this month. Found Derrick looking after the place. The improvements are brilliant. Ruth Sandow has done a wonderful job getting finance for the new works.
Well done all.
Jeff McVicar one of my most favourite places and one of the best snittys I’ve had at the pub. Can’t wait to get back there 🥰🥰

Recent guests Kayode, Christina and her parents (visiting from Germany) loved their stay with us. “Just wanted to say again we really loved our stay in the overseer’s cottage. My parents also loved it and they learnt so much about the outback. The tour at Dunlop station was so much fun, and your Mud Map tours were also great, especially exploring the old homestead. Hopefully we’ll be able to come again in the future and I’ll certainly be recommending Trilby Station. “ ... See MoreSee Less

Dunlop Station have closed for the summer, allowing Kim a well-earned break to tackle other things on her To Do list. It’s an amazing tour and great camping and they’ll reopen next year.Thank you to everyone who has supported Dunlop in 2023 I am closing for a break while it is warm and in our quiet time of the year ☀️
Time to catch up on a few behind the scene jobs and spend some time in the garden, maybe some bookwork ( may need some chocolate to help me !!!) If we are lucky...some rain 💦
You can still send through enquires and bookings during the summer 0458472698 Kim Text is best...just in case I’m out in the paddock 👨🌾🐑🌸
See you all for another year of camping and tours in 2024 🥂 ... See MoreSee Less
This looks promising for us doesn’t it. Let’s hope the weather forecasters have it right! If rain does eventuate our unsealed roads will close until dry, so bear that in mind OK. Google Bourke Shire and Central Darling Shire road condition reports for accurate info (as opposed to Live Traffic). ... See MoreSee Less
