Book: Life on the Currango High Plains and beyond
This book was written by and for the people who have lived or come in contact with the long forgotten mountain townships like Bella Vista, Kenny’s Knob, Happy Jacks, Eagle Hawk and Cabramurra. It’s about the droving exploits of people for who the great sale yards at Bairnsdale was their destination with one thousand head of cattle, some local some from over the Queensland border. It tells us what it was like growing up in Kiandra as told by an octogenarian and about the snow leases that brought people to the mountains for the summer to care for their cattle and sheep.
Memories of Currango Homestead are told too, by people who loved the high plains and fished the many streams.
