The wall contains 70 plaques and commemorates over 100 people, all from Blackall, who have had a connection with droving over the years.

The wall was the idea of local identity, Stewart Benson and is sited at Blackall’s Ram Park tourism complex. It was unveiled before a crowd of hundreds attending the town’s 150th anniversary celebrations, among them the boss drovers, drovers’ cooks, horse tailers and shepherds whose names have been recorded for all time.
