Tolarno Station. The river has always been the lifeblood of the property - providing not only a vital source of water for our community and animals, but also as a valuable trade route. In the s to the turn of the century, the Darling River was a hive of activity, with paddle steamers plying its path. Tolarno wool was washed in the river, before being put on the boat and taken down the river and onto boats to England, and the return journey saw Tolarno welcome supplies and new faces. From onwards, the river has remained an important trade route, as well as providing water for our stock.

Others will note that he urged Brown to be more open about the cuts that Labour would have to make in an attempt to prevent the Tories from claiming the mantle of fiscal responsibility for themselves.
