Mill stream – Fortesque river

Mill stream – Fortesque river

Mill stream is a beautiful national park on the Fortesque river. The well preserved homestead tells the story of affluent times of the early pioneers who raised sheep, grew vegetables and played tennis on their termite nest tennis court, entertaining their neighbors under the beautiful trees in the garden.

Sadly, predators like dingoes, and distances to markets etc brought about the demise of the sheep industry in this district by the 1960’s.
