  • Description

    The trek started near Roma, in south-west Queensland fifteen weeks ago.

    Nine hundred Hereford cattle had been driven through the back stock routes of N.S.W. Now they were near the end of the trek - a property in the Singleton district. There they would be used for re-stocking an area which has felt the effects of drought in recent months.

    A Narrabri drover, Mick Quirk, with three other drovers and a cook travelled with the mob. Their journey has taken them form stock routes near the border that were as bare as gravel roads to fertile flats edging the Hunter River. It had been a tough trip, for Quirk had taken the cattle through overgrown little-used routes, through drought-stricken areas.

    Now the end of the journey was only a few miles off.
