    Reminds me of the days I worked at Tempe Downs in’49 the owner Tom Fenn, manager Joe ‘Obrien, also with Jack OO’Donnel built two cattle yards at Kings Creek, big enough to hold 2,00 head of cattle, with Bloodwood Posts and Desert Oak rails and 5 rails high with double swimg gates, and Bronco Panels, One at Kings Creek and other at Baggot springs. (Six weeks to build each yard), with assistance of Peter from Peterman Tribe, and Stanley station stckman. Ueed camels for tracing logs for Postsl Supplies from Station every two weeks, by pack camels.
    Now living in Vancouver Canada since ’73.

    I would surely like to hear of anyone that has any photo’s of those yards at Kings Creek and Baggot Springs, when I worked at Tempe. As I am in the process of writing a book on my days in the NT and world travels.

      Hi Heather

      Thanks Heather for your query. I have never been to Tempe Station, which is in the Northern Territory so I cannot answer your question. I notice your comment came up on the photos from the Bronco Branding Championships at Maree where there a large number of horses of various breeds. Sorry I could not be of more help.
