Product Description

What you can discover on the Birdsville Track, an old Chevrolet.

While traveling the famous Birdsville Track I came across this World War 2 Chevrolet army  truck at Mungerannie ( one of two truck at the time).   Mungerannie  is basically a pub and roadhouse in the middle of the Birdsville Track, with nothing else for hundreds of Kilometres in each direction. This was the first time I had traveled on the Birdsville track so everything was a discovery. I wish I could have spent more time at Mungerannie because the bird life  in the near by thermal springs  was abundant with species I had not seen before. But like always I was on a tight time frame and had to make Birdsville before night.

Mungerannie Station, is a homestead /  pub on the Birdsville Track  South Australia. Located some 200 km north of Marree, South Australia and some 310 km south of Birdsville.  This  is the only fuel and supplies depot on the Birdsville Track. The name “Mungeranie” is Aboriginal for “big ugly face”.

The homestead has  a hotel/pub and an airstrip,  it lies next to  the Derwent Creek. A  waterhole which is fed by an artesian bore , this has created  wetlands which provides a brilliant habitat for over 100 local species of birds.

Lloyd Howlett’s Australian landscape limited edition photographs are printed on archival quality canvas (designed to last well in to the next century and beyond) individually numbered and signed. Making each print completely individual.
