Stockyards and Saddles: A Story of Gibb River Station explores the lives of those living and working on the remote cattle station of Gibb River in the East Kimberley region from the early 1900s until the 1990s.

The importance of photographs as historical memorabilia often goes beyond the people represented in the images to depict a period of time in our country’s history. Given many of the original cattlemen are no longer with us and the old stories of stockyards and saddles now seem such a distant memory, the Berndt Museum celebrates this life in cattle country for those few who remain.
