Lost liv­ing link to Cheedys

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

Re­cently, an old black­feller, Mr Cheedy, passed on. He was over 100 years old. This hut, I be­lieve, was built by him and his mates many years ago.

It is now on Hoo­ley Sta­tion 150km north-north-east of Tom Price be­tween Mulga Downs and Yande­yarra.

There is a wind­mill called Cheedys; in its orig­i­nal state it would have been an ab­so­lute work of art.

Just north of Cheedys is a wa­ter­shed area where the creeks flow into Hoo­ley Creek, Pow­dar Creek and the Chich­ester and Mun­ga­roona ranges. The Mun­ga­roona range na­ture re­serve is an in­cred­i­ble area. No one goes there it is so iso­lated. Ken Sali­gari Ex­mouth
