AACo desk

 

The desk was relocated to Queensland in 1996, when the Australian Agricultural Company (AACo) sold its remaining stake in Warrah.

But last year’s centenary celebrations marking the seminal 1912 Warrah Station subdivision prompted AACo to gift the desk back to the people of Willow Tree.

Centre manager Nikki Robertson said after a year spent arranging the precious desk’s move, she was delighted to finally see it on display.

 

“It’s a beautiful desk but, because it has a glass top, it was rather complicated to organise it to be delivered here,” she said.

“It all looks lovely and it gives people an impression of the history of the area.”

 

A small ceremony was held for the unveiling.
