‘Unputdownable … epitomising the great Australian novel.’

Anita Heiss

‘Bursting with pathos, humour and folklore.’

Michael Burge author of Tank Water

‘A captivating story. Evocative, engrossing and entertaining.’

Alison Booth author of The Painting.

The Last Station

In nineteenth-century New South Wales, the name Dalhunty stood for prosperity and prestige. The family’s vast station was home to more than eighty people, and each year their premium wool was shipped down the bustling Darling River to be sold in South Australia.

Yet, just decades later, Dalhunty Station is on the brink of ruin…

The Last Station is a captivating story of heritage, heartbreak and hope, set during the dying days of the riverboat trade along the Darling River.
