‘Of sheep and vines’ – Bungaree Station celebrates 175th anniversary

Bungaree Station comenorated its 175th anniversary with a barrow relay ‘Of sheep and vines” attracting a large crowd as it travelled along The Riesling Trail from Sevenhill to Barinia then onto Bungaree.

The event was a re-enactment of a similar trek 175 years ago to collect vine vuttings from Sevenhill Cellars for planting at Bungaree and highlighted the important role the station played in the development of the district.
