Photographer's Note

Best opened in a new tab for better detail.

We stayed on a sheep/goat station on the Darling river at Gunderbooka. The river wasn't very deep but that didn't stop some travellers trying (very unsuccessfully) to catch fish. The banks were very steep so they'd stuck their rods in the back and retreated to the top to sit on chairs and enjoy a beer.
Goats are being increasingly farmed on outback sheep stations. They are very hardy and unlike sheep don't eat grass to the roots. The herds have been developed from wild feral goats with the addition of good quality males to lift the herd quality. Most of the goat meat is exported to the USA and the Middle East.
