Description

Recollections of the pioneering years of transportation in the deserts of OUTBACK Australia.

Memoirs of a man starting with a horse and cart, who pioneered a reliable outback transport service, including the Birdsville Track mail run for twelve years.

“I can remember Harry Ding whilst I was going to school at Olary aged about twelve. ” Fred Teague wrote .

Fred wrote “I began driving trucks for Harry about 1935, carting wool, petrol, groceries and ore throughout the northern areas. Within a year of beginning employment with Harry, he took on sheep carting into Queensland to Milo Pastoral Company, passing through Broken Hill, Tibooburra, Mt. Margaret and Quilpie, to Milo. The other run was through Broken Hill, Wilcannia, and up the Darling through Tilpa, Louth, Bourke, Brewarrina, Goodooga to Hebel in Queensland. Harry had mail contracts which ran generally every weekend with the odd mail runs mid-week.”
