Artist Inspiration

In the 1880s, the Dargonelly Waterhole was a pristine, natural paradise that sang with the seasons. Situated south of Marlong Arch, it’s a decent horseback ride from Carnarvon homestead, and could well have been one of the attractions Albert Dahlke took his sister to see on her visit out west.
The brown felt hat and boots evoke such a possibility.
Albert, the eldest of eight siblings, had provided for their welfare since the drowning of his father in the Nerang River when he was twelve.
