The Pyrenees takes its name from the ranges in the north named by Major Mitchell in 1836 as they reminded him of the Pyrenees in Europe. Initially both areas were settled for the purpose of sheep and cattle grazing.

There are still a number of the original homesteads in use today, some of which are open to the public, and still run as grazing properties.
Some of the best wool growing country in Australia can be found within the Pyrenees.

    It is such a beautiful place Chris!! There is so much information about sheeping in Australia in the book the Thorn Birds. It is one of my favorite books. I read it over and over again.
