Men of Yulgilbar
This exhibition explores the history and contribution of key men in the history of Yulgilbar Station.
Following the successful Women of Yulgilbar exhibition in March 2017, this exhibition features some of the many men whose hard work and leadership skills ensured that Yulgilbar remains a successful and much-loved historic rural property of the Clarence Valley.
Men of Yulgilbar explores the lives and contributions of the men whose work has shaped Yulgilbar’s history, including Bundjalung leader Toolbillibam, Edward Ogilvie, Allan Rogan, Sam Hordern, Baillieu Myer, Rob Sinnamon, Boxer Kroehnert and the Yulgilbar shepherds.
This exhibition presents incredible historic photographs, as well as artifacts and stories that give us unique insights into these men’s lives, and the life of Yulgilbar station as an ever-evolving mainstay in Australia’s station history.
This exhibition was curated by Jennifer Baldwin and Lianne Hart, of the Yulgilbar Archives.
