Booubyja Cobbo at Booubyjan Station 1880s
Some Aboriginal people work for the settlers. They are dressed in European clothes, fed European food and live in camps near the homestead. They play a vital role in the development of the Queensland pastoral industry.
The owners of Booubyjan had a good relationship with the Aboriginal people who lived and worked on the station.
They commissioned FW Whitehouse to paint the portrait of Cobbo, where it was hung in the homestead.
