Information

The old windmill and tank here are located 15 km north of Swindell Field on the Kidson Track and marked on Hema GDT maps. The windmill is broken. There is no accessible water here. There's an old tractor, an old caravan and some old corigated iron shelters. (August 2008)

This site was used as a borstal type facility back in the early 80's.Young aboriginal youths who were going off the rails were bought out here to remove them from the bad influences and return them "to country" - (Updated June 2009)
