Artist's Description

Shearer’s quarters located about 200m from a big shearing shed in rural NSW. The shearers would have been accommodated here during shearing.

Today, with modern machinery and fewer sheep, shearing takes less than a week and most of the shearers live locally and don’t require accommodation so quarters like these are left unused.

The chimney’s are in a large kitchen area and there is still a big, solid old stove housed there that would have been used for cooking and heating water.
