Culgoa - Balonne: Images from interview with Peter and Margaret Petersen


Peter and Margaret (Pop) Petersen were the former managers of the Brenda Station in Goodooga. Previously owned by the Church of England, Brenda Station was primarily involved in grazing. The Culgoa River that ran through the property was a major source of feed and water for the Petersen's and their community.

Images provided by Peter and Margaret (Pop) Petersen. Many show River Red Gums (some of which are up to 800 years old), stressed from changes in flood and dry cycles.
