“Vintage” digital art creation of the Bullock Team hauling a blackbutt log on a timber truck made from ironbark.
Original taken at Timbertown, Wauchope, near Port Macquarie NSW, of Bullock Driver Craig Lockwood and the team led by “Cocky” and “Spanker” – noise and grain added in Simply HDR for Mac, Sepia tone and vintage texture added in PSE 10.
According to Craig:
“Bullocks are not only part of the Timbertown Heritage but also a part of the Australian Heritage – they not only brought timber to the mill, they were also used around the mill. Bullocks were used in every major construction prior to the 1900’s. The main four cargoes they carried were wheat, wool, sugarcane and timber, but there is nothing they haven’t been used for during this period. Since the main industry during the 1800’s in this area was timber, hundreds of bullock teams would have worked up and down the coast and in any area where timber was harvested.”
