Historic sheep drafting yard

Historic sheep drafting yard - Anna Creek Station

Believe it or not, the desert country surrounding William Creek used to be used as a sheep station.

From 1863 to 1918 the Hogarth and Warren families persevered against all odds with sheep grazing. Eventually, rising costs, exploding dingo populations and frequent droughts forced the abandonment of their dreams.

There are a great number of relics of this bygone era on Anna Creek Station but few are more perfectly preserved than this 1800s mulga stick sheep drafting yard half way between Coober Pedy and William Creek.
