East Lynne

One of many sawmills throughout the region where Aboriginal people worked. Many Aboriginal people undertook many tasks within the sawmill industry. From getting logs deep within the bushland, to packing and bench work. This is just one account of the mill, previously located in the East Lynne area. No doubt other such stories exist.

Ryan’s Mill was at East Lynne. Cyril Parsons, Terry Parson’s father worked there. Terry Parsons attended Benandarah School at the time. Cockwhy Creek Mill was west of East Lynne Store and was owned by Old Charlie Croker. Cyril worked there too [Terry Parsons 18.12.2005].
