Warrakoo Station is on the Murray River,NSW.
Not the Darling River.

The picture above is not one of the houses at Warrakoo. Nothing in the photograph looks anything like Warrakoo homestead or the other two houses.

This is the 'Top House' at Warrakoo. Check MM 4884 for a later version after an extension, verandahs and the small meathouse/storage building to the left, were added. The house that can just be seen at right of centre is 'Gil's house' (Gil Smith) and can be seen more clearly in MM 4884. To the left of the ladies is the bank of the dam in MM 4884. The orchards changed a lot and when I arrived in this world at Warrakoo in 1951, they had changed even more.
