Gundagai – The Dog On The Tuckerbox

Gundagai - The Dog On The Tuckerbox

The dog on the tuckerbox at Gundagai. This commemorates the poems, or songs, about the bullock-drivers, bullockies, and the pioneers of inland Australia. It was the bullock drivers that transported goods along mud tracks in all weathers to the early settlers. The bronze dog is the work of Frank Rusconi, a local monumental mason.

NSW BKD Prison Van

The long arm of the law finally caught up with me in Thirlmere. Here I am imprisoned in the NSW Government Railways BKD Prison Van. Four of these vans were built in 1915 and remained in service until 1975, transporting prisoners around the state.
