Bullock cue

Used to shoe bullocks in bullock teams.

One of the great successes of Explore the Outback over the years has been the relocation of the original bullocky wagon road. This old wagon road was abandoned as a main thoroughfare by 1891 but when in use it was the only route into the interiors.

The bullocky road was used by cattle, horse, donkey and camel teams but it was the bullocky teams that first pioneered the route.

Today the bullocky road is all but gone but evidence of its original line can be found in the form of historic "litter" which includes glass and of course, discarded or lost bullock cues, (reference).
