This is about the Duracks from Goulburn 1886-87 bringing cattle up with a Wagon train to start their station. It’s an important story for the Kimberley. They went to Argle station there.  Bill and Maxine Mcdonald  also brought cattle took them three years to drove the cattle to the Kimberelys to Argyle station, from there they went to Fossil Downs and west of Fossil downs they let all the cattle go at Korri Billabong. Sandy Shaw told me this story, he was a Gogo Stockman. He showed me the tree where they camped, that big tree, it’s finished now from bush fire and flood. The country was pretty bare then not much vegetation.
