This display is to commemorate the bullockies and their teams who pioneers the timber industry in this area in the lat 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.'
