Hi i recently discovered i had relatives at gregory downs so i thought id pay them a visit ,it was a very enjoyable experience in lots of ways .It turns out my incle Elton owns a cattle station here thats 450 square kms and he runs approx 10,000 head of cattle give or take a 1000 as cattle rustling still happens in these parts ,considering it can take you a day to get to some of the most extreme perimeters, we know its happening but we more or less have to catch them red handed to proof it and also have to be careful not to confront them alone or theres a good chance youll end up as road kill.
Hi to pass through this town in the day you could be forgiven in thinking that no one lives here ,but come friday night people come in from the surrounding cattle stations to let there hair hang down,well thats an understatement they go crazy !

- Cons:can get very humid in summer
- In a nutshell:beers, bundi rum,barra fishing in the gulf country;)
