Billabong - Foxlow Station

This is one of a series of posts dealing with the Molonglo High Plains (Hoskinstown, Rossi, Forbes Creek and other areas to the west of the old volcano Palerang).  The entire series is at:


Foxlow Station is one of the largest holdings to the South of Hoskinstown.  The Yandyguinula joins the Molonglo on the property - and there is a superb billabong.


Billabong - Foxlow Station


Great Dividing Range - near Captains Flat
Summer home to countless generations of the first people.  Briefly the haunt of a dangerous bushranger family.  Now, the old public road and train track that once passed nearby are long abandoned.   Now it is home to sheep and whistling ducks.

Just as the sun disappears, it gets very quiet.  Then the sound of a family of kookaburras  in the distance and a lone Cockatoo calling as she flies looking for her pack.
