Inscription in Proximity

This display is to commemorate the
bullockies and their teams who pioneered 
the timber industry in this area in the late
1800s and early 1900s.

'A place to meet on their journey`s way,
A place to rest at the close of day,
Sharing a billy and a tale to tell,
Midst the night time clanging of the ole bullock bell.'

This is a Lions Club of Crow`s Nest Project
completed in April 2013 with the support
of other community members and
the sponsorship of the local
Heritage Bank Community Branch
