1963

An attempt to move live cattle by boat up the Victoria River was made. 60-80 bulls were taken by barge to Darwin. No reason was recorded but this remains the only attempt at water transfers.

1963 was also the year the property was sold to Charles and Sara Henderson.  They went to live in the US between 1966 – 1971, with Charles’ cousin, Gus Trippe, involved as part owner during that time.
