Cairns Centennial Pack Horse Mail

Packing the 'Wratham Park' Pack Bags at Thornborough with the Cairns Centennial Pack Horse Mail (1976).  The anvil on the toyota's bull bar is the original from Crossland blacksmith of the Hodgkinson gold fields.  From the left: Peter Jones (back), Graeme Steel (leaning front), Alan Roos, Bill McFarlane, and the author (standing).



The Pack Horse mail envelope with the gold fields franking stamp, helped to raise over 20,000 dollars to fund the special Cairns Centennial activities.
