Shearer's Hall of Fame
The Shearers Hall of Fame showcases the history of shearing in the Gascoyne region. The display highlights the vibrant shearing culture of the area and tells many tales and stories of the local legends over the years. One such famous story tells of the ‘Mad Eight’ who in 1923 at Williambury Station shore almost 18,000 sheep in a fortnight, all with hand shears. When it was found that the Williambury fleeces that year averaged 11 lb (5.3kg) each, the Mad Eight clinched their place in the Shearing’s Hall of Fame.
