Photographer's Note

The shearing shed and the shearers were kept well away from the homestead at Willandra to keep the "uncouth" shearers at a distance. In the case of Willandra that meant away from the creek and out on the plains amidst the low scrub.
The shearing shed is not as old as some, having a steel frame and corrugated iron cladding. The shearers quarters are timber and have been restored with a fresh coat of red paint. The trees are a variety of very hardy hakea.
The shearing shed is within the national park but is still used occasionally by local sheep station owners.
