Lilford Station

Shearing shed on Lilford Station - Sigma 24-105mm, f/4.0

My Bride grew up on Lilford Station about 85k's north of Winton, in Northwest Queensland — 1,196.66 km (743.57 miles) northwest of Brisbane, as the crow flies (1435 k's if you drive).

In the intervening 40+ years Lilford has been aggregated with other properties and the homestead has fallen into disuse. Lilford was sheep property, but it's cattle now. It was the last opportunity for the family to visit.

It's dry now in Winton. They're hoping for rain before the end of the year. Decisions about stock will need to be made.

It was an important trip. I'm glad I saw it and I'm glad our daughter saw it.
