Working on Cattle Stations: Aboriginal Women's Stories

Provided by:

Event runs from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM


A stunning photographic display commissioned to capture and recognise the contribution, resilience, spirit and sheer hard work of the Aboriginal women who played a vital role in establishing the cattle industry in the Gulf Region. Featuring portraits from Australian photographer David Prichard, three of which have been nominated as finalists in the internationally recognised Taylor Wessing Photography Portrait Prize, this display complements David's previous photographic work in the Indigenous Rodeo Riders exhibition, featuring cattlemen who followed the rodeo circuits with accompanying poems by a local author. The display enhances the visitor experience at the Normanton Visitor Information Centre, housed in the historic and heritage-listed Burns Philp building, which attracts tourists travelling on both the Matilda Way and Savannah Way.
