derelict stock yards at Zanci station mungo national park outback nsw australia

Stockyards at Mungo National Park IMG 1472 - It's been a long time since sheep were crammed into these old stockyards that are beside the wool shearing shed of the historic Zanci station that's now part of Mungo National Park in outback NSW. This is usually an arid region, but rains brought emerald vegetation back to life. The pens were built with the timber of native cypress pine trees, a Callitris species that is common in the region and valued for its timber, which is resistant to attacks by termites.
