Joseph Hawdon and Charles Bonney drove cattle

In Wentworth’s Junction Park you’ll find the plaque marking the spot where Hawdon and Bonney crossed the Darling River.

Joseph Hawdon and Charles Bonney drove cattle overland from New South Wales to Adelaide along the Murray and arrived at the Darling/Murray junction in 1838. Other overlanders followed the route, which became known as the Sydney/Adelaide ‘highway’, and the river junction spot became an established camp site known as Hawdon’s Ford. The actual junction at the time was called “The Rinty”. The settlement was later referred to as the “Darling Junction”.
