In the 1960’s, a pastoral lease for Bullo River Valley Station was granted, bringing about the arrival of pastoralists, stockmen and women who faced oppressive conditions and isolation. They poured their blood sweat and tears into developing Bullo into a viable cattle station.
Although we are still compiling a great deal of Bullo’s early history, it is clear through early imagery that Aboriginal people worked at the station, contributing to its early development. The Aboriginal men were known to be expert stockmen, with a unique talent for finding wayward stock.
The number and breeds of cattle have changed over the years, as have the stockmen who mustered across the valleys. The homestead and station has expanded and modernised, but the spirit of the bushmen and women who pioneered cattle in the outback remains in our team today.
