Yes, Len Lukey
I know the property having come from down that way, prime grazing with river frontage but the purchase price astounded me!! What do you get for $126k nowadays? That's a BIG property! Down that way they have some beautiful homesteads, ballrooms etc but not sure what that one was like. Another with extensive property down that way is Tom Barr-Smith, used to Rally years ago, i'm sure it was 1960's, BMC I think for 'Taylors of Menindee'. I remember one night working at the drive-in in WW and in they came in of all things, an AUDI QUATTRO!! I rang my brother, as he like me had never seen one!
