The Shearing Tree

A large gum tree which once cast its shade over the old Cannawigara Shearing Shed (built in 1869) is today known as the “Shearing Tree”.

In their spare time shearers used to play a kind of ‘darts’ with the old broken shears by throwing their blades at a particular spot in the tree. A blade pierced the trunk so deeply it remains there to this day.
