Clover on the Cooper

As I indicated in my first story, my grandparents and my father both worked for Sir Sidney Kidman. My father, Richard, was born in Birdsville in 1917, the second of three children to Henry Stevenson McCullagh and Emilie Morton, who were working for Kidman on Annandale Station.

Growing up in the bush

In 1953 my soon-to-be parents managed Glenhaughton Station, west of Taroom and adjacent the Robinson Gorge National Park in Queensland. This cattle station was a large one and my Father was unable to get away, so as the time for my birth approached, my Mother, her 8 year old daughter and a 3 year old son journeyed to Adelaide, returning to the station two months later with me in her arms.
