Road Trains

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Long, large trucks called road trains are used to carry livestock from outback cattle stations to ports where they are exported from Australia. The live cattle trade depends on these vehicles which can carry over 100 animals at a time, often in "triples" or three double decked trailers. The road trains have replaced drovers as primary movers of cattle.
