Drovers tell their stories

An oral history recording has been made using material and interviews with a number of early farming families from Bridgetown, Manjimup and Nannup.  The families were involved with droving stock along the stock routes as the seasons changed and feed for the cattle was needed for them to survive.  The Oral History project was the result of an alliance between Community Development Officers of three shires, Megan Richards (Bridgetown), Hsien Harper (Manjimup) and Louise Stokes (Nannup). It was made so the stories of the old timers who originally did the stock routes could tell their stories before they were lost forever. The project provided tape recordings, which are being burnt to a CD, as well as the transcript of the interviews.  For full story click here.
