The Last Great Cattle Drive pays tribute to the last of Australia’s drovers, as 1,200 head of cattle are driven from the Northern Territory to Queensland on a journey covering 2,000 kms and taking four months.

Australia’s last great cattle drive started in May 1988 with 1,200 head of cattle on a journey from Newcastle Waters in the Northern Territory and ended 2,000 km to the east in Longreach, Queensland the following September. This film is a celebration of the cattle drives that opened up the Territory and were a feature of outback life until the advent of road trains. A handful of drovers still operate today. One is Pic Willetts, boss drover on “The Last Great Cattle Drive”.

The Last Great Cattle Drive is a fascinating insight into the rugged characters that shaped Australia.
