New England's vanished towns - Kookaburra


In some ways, the New England landscape is littered with the remains of past settlements. 

Gordon Smith has been exploring the Carrai Plateau, a huge granite area surrounded by steep escarpments that drop to Kunderang Brook and the Macleay River.

The little settlement of Kookaburra was a tiny saw milling centre. This photo shows the Kookaburra Fire Station. Gordon wondered just what might have been stored inside!
