    Packhorse & Waterhole is the classic of Northern Territory pastoral exploration. Bluey Buchanan, old Paraway, was one of Australias greatest bushmen. This is the story of a man who paved the way and made the tracks easy for others to follow.5/5. The Murranji also gets the unique Skyward Rear lift-up deck, among a host of other goodies. 4x4 product test: Tvan Tanami We recently took a Canning (below the Murranji on the Tvan line-up) model on a gruelling two-week jaunt through the South Australian outback.

    In , the Government let a contract for the sinking of bores along the Murranji Track. This did much to help the growth of Newcastle Waters as the town became a depot for the construction teams. Syd Peacock won the contract to complete the 13 bores between Anthony’s Lagoon to the east and Yellow Waterhole along the Murranji to the west.   One of his most harrowing achievements was the blazing of the bleak Murranji Track, from near Daly Waters to Victoria River Downs. Charlie Gaunt, (the subject of my new book, Whistler’s Bones) later wrote that Nat Buchanan had four characteristics that made him great: bushmanship, organisation, observation, and initiative.
