    Gundagai, Dog on the TuckerBox.

    September 28 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Bill the Bulllocky & The dog on the tuckerbox memorial is supposedly based on a incident that occurred to a teamaster called Bill the Buckley on the road to Gundagai in the 1850s. While leading his bullock team & wagon across a creek 5 or 9 miles from Gundagai , Bill’s wagon became hopelessly bogged in the creek. Trying to drag the wagon out of the bog, one of his bullocks then broke the wagons yoke. Thereupon Bill gave up the job & went to have his lunch . But here, to top off his run of bad luck , he found his dog sitting -or worse - on his tuckerbox . The other bullockies thought the incident a great joke & one of them supposedly wrote a poem about it, the poem spread the story of Bill’s bad luck .Read more
