Pioneer and Pastoral Experience  
Gather at White Lake for Sunday’s guided tagalong, to wander through our ancient & pioneering past to modern pastoralism. Look back at the earthen ‘McCullochs Tank’, its Chinese stonework & wonder about the old Cobb & Co staging stop & hotel that’s gone but for broken glass and a lonely grave, though there’s native wells. Then we drive past the old survey scar tree & modern solar bore to peer into the old Deep Well & up at the old Windmill. We will stop and meet the cattle of this wooded desert country and see into a woman’s contemporary approach to ethical beef.Pastoral Interpretative Tour guided by your hosts.

White Lake Sunset
Together we share the last sunset at White Lake and the joys & wander of Stratford Country as we bid farewell, until next time.Nibbles.

Legally owning grazing country is humbled by the acknowledgment that Aboriginal Australians are culturally owned by the land. We are but temporal on Traditional Wadjabangayi Lands; and much there is to learn and share.
