Abstract

FROM the turn of the century until about 25 years ago, the patient, hardy donkey played an important role in the pastoral industry of the North-West and Kimberleys. Donkey and camel teams plodded inland from the ports, hauling waggons loaded with food, drink, clothing, tools, fencing wire, building materials, medicines, furniture and all the other items needed on the stations and in the widely-scattered townships. Later, the waggons were hauled back to the ports loaded high with wool, hides and sandalwood.
