I joined the board of the Stockman’s Hall of Fame in Longreach in July 2002 and finished my tenure in 2022.
I was Chairman of the Board for 13 years. Peter Hughes is the Chairman now. He’ll support the CEO, Lloyd Mills.
The Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame is a museum located in Longreach, Queensland, Australia, which pays tribute to pioneers of the Australian outback. The centre is also dedicated to Australian stockmen who have shown bravery and courage.
The founder of the Hall of Fame was artist Hugh Sawrey, a well-known painter and former stockman, who had the name registered in 1974, put up the initial funding, and enlisted supporters. His vision was to create a memorial to the explorers, overlanders, pioneers and settlers of outback Australia.
