from Pastoral Review, August 1926

Mr. Duncan Livingston, of Kooroogama, Moree, N.S.W., died last month at the age of 65 years. He was born in South Australia, but when still a young man overlanded in company with Mr. W. Partridge from that State into Queensland with the object of taking up some of the great pastoral country lying south of Longreach. He did not reach that locality, however, for they found what they were after nearer the New South Wales border, so took up a leasehold there of about 30,000 acres, naming it Bullawarrie. This partnership continued for a few years, when the late Mr. Livingston bought out his partner.

A Merino stud was commenced on Bullawarrie, and is still in existence, being under the name of Messrs. Livingston Bros., the sons of the deceased. Other stations held by the family at the present time are Kooroogama and Boolooroo, Moree. Burrandown, near Mungindi, Q., which was bought by Mr. Livingston after he acquired Bullawarrie, was sold some time ago. In addition, he had an interest in South Comongin, Quilpie, Q., and owned Beefwood, in the Moree district, at one period.

The deceased gentleman was a leading authority on the breeding of Merino sheep and horses. He is survived by his wife, three sons, Hugh, Hector and Kenneth, and two daughters. The late Mr. Livingston was a true friend and wise counsellor, the type of pioneer and pastoralist the country can ill afford to lose. A photo will appear in our next issue.
