The earliest infrastructure in Australia was the road – and to the early foresters, the most important
roads were the forest roads.
Bullock teams meandered slowly down the hills, man and animal moving together to balance and
glide the logs on barely passable roads. These teams were the image of forestry work that greeted
people who lived away from the forests. Townsfolk near the mills would see the logs enter their town and
be in awe of the brave bullock teams and their drivers.
