The Last Drover of the Canning Stock Route Era
Written by the last drover of the Canning Stock Route Era - Don Tait
Tait was born in 1939 of mixed parents - a Scottish father and Jewish-Arab mother. He spent much of his youth travelling before commencing work on Bililuna Station in February 1958.
By the end of 1958 Tait had completed two cattle drives down the Canning and walked a string of camels back up the stock route to Bililuna. During this time he witnessed the demise of the iconic stock route as a means of moving cattle, due in part to water quality problems at some wells, the inability of others to water more than a dozen head at a time, and the emerging road transport industry.
