I have painted my traditional Country in Carlton Hill.

Back in the 60s we used to drove cattle from Carlton Hill Station to Wyndham meatworks on horseback.  The horse tailers used to carry our swags, food and water etc on pack horses, as well as other fresh horses for the whole droving team.  We used to do night watch shifts looking after the cattle at night taking turns.  There were lots of hard issues that we had to combat on these droving trips as well.
