The Northern Territory has a rich, eclectic history combining aboriginal dreamtime stories, multicultural folklore, early settler sagas, bushranger legends, and anecdotes from the larger than life drovers. Only too willing to share a yarn or two, it's hard not to fall in love with their robust and unconventional lifestyle.
The Northern Territory Library's, 'Territory Stories' repository plays a valuable role in documenting the unique characters who lived the Northern Territory.
Many historic droving images, including these selected, are contained in the 'PictureNT' collection which is housed in the 'Territory Stories' repository.
