There were stories about bullockies (teamsters) spending months on hot dusty tracks, milkmen in their carts delivering twice daily to every house in town and Cobb & Co coaches lurching across mountain tracks with passengers cramped and motion sick inside.
A few highly-skilled Banbai men worked full-time as stockmen, shepherds, drovers and bullockies' offsiders and several others were employed seasonally during spring and early summer as lambers, sheep-washers, shed-hands, harvesters, threshers and bark-collectors.
The roads were quite unmade and when the track got so cut up that a wagon would sink down to its axles, the bullockies would try a new track.
