Summary

"The corrugated iron shearers' quarters and cookhouse, close by the original homestead which is abandoned but almost liveable, have survived well in the arid climate. Owner Ken Thompson still survives but lives in town while negotiating the potential sale of the historic sheep property. (NB: German land artist Maria Buckner's installation 'Gold Stream' is located on a remote corner of the property. This venture, under patronage of the Goethe Institute, comprises some 50,000 river pebbles coated with 21 carat gold leaf costing around $26,000. I photographed the installation from start to finish, in colour -- and made a television documentary, from the ground and helicopter, shown throughout Europe."--Description supplied by photographer.
