We are keenly aware, both through our travelling, and from contacts made by telephone, fax, mail and the internet from our home base, of a significant connectedness between people from all over the place, and we feel privileged to be part of it.

We believe that businesses are built on relationships, and that successful business is as much about people as product, and our suppliers and customers are very important to us.

This section of our website gives an account of people and places across the great land of Australia, and beyond. So, enjoy! It’s our continued hope that our website is of real and lasting benefit to you.

Station Photos

At each cattle station stopover one of the first things we do after we’ve opened the display doors of the Supa-Float, is put out the current and previous two years’ station photo albums. Consistently, people gather, like “bees around a honey pot”. We hear giggles, raucous laughter, comments (positive and negative), and lots of animated conversation as visual connections are made from all over the Outback.

In 2001 we began to take photos of groups of people at the cattle stations we visited. It’s been a rewarding and valuable exercise, and with so many years’ worth of photos on file, thousands of people, at hundreds of cattle stations, are now part of a historical record.

Just one more shot…the last one’s always the best!
