Artist's Description

The woolshed at Cordillo Downs once had stands for 120 shearers which makes it Australia’s biggest woolshed.

It was a good thing that it was so big, because by the early 20th century, Cordillo Downs, with 85,000 sheep, was Australia’s biggest sheep station.

Not any more though. Today, the station runs cattle … ~7,000 of them.

Buggered if I know what the cattle eat though. There’s not a lot of grass out there. There’s not a lot of trees either, which is why the woolshed is made of stones .. they’ve got lots of them … :-)
