I've never been there but it looks interesting. The Customline wagon Road-Railer is different, never seen one or a picture before. The tourer looks like a 1927 or earlier (certainly not later) Chevrolet by the shape of the headlights and spare wheel carrier. Nice to see the Daisy Bates memorial also.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I've just spent the best part of an Hour Reading about Daisy.... !!
She led a very interesting Life. 3 Husbands all at the same time (sort of) with Breaker Morant being one of them..

That picture of yours, which we have seen before was what prompted my comment, but still a lot of Commers. Most weren't loaded as heavy as yours though
