With the red soil plain in front, Beerbee shows the area on Rosewood Cattle Station in the Northern Territory, where the flat pasture country, in green ochre mix, narrows and runs through Mule Gap. It was into this gap, that they would run cattle into the week-long drive into the meat works in Wyndham. Seen too, are the hills, in which are found Kelly''s Rockhole to the left and to the right, Settler''s Knob.
