  1. Matt says:

    There is a second one in Corowa, outside the Newmarket Hotel

  2. Matt says:

    Also – saw this on Google Street View in Two Wells, South Australia. Looks very similar to a Bills trough, may be a reproduction. Never seen any like one in SA before.


  3. Jan says:

    I was delighted to see a Bills Horse Trough in the paddock with the Waler horses at the Collingwood Children’s Farm when I visited recently. Such an appropriate historical relationship in such an historic setting.

  4. Tamar says:

    The trough at Urana has a metal horse and a mob of sheep. A wonderful community story behind the additions. Ask the locals as you drive through the town.

  5. billshorsetroughs says:

    Thanks Bruce have seen that trough some one has done a wonderful job makes it look so good George

  6. Patricia Wilson says:

    Just visited Wycheproof on the weekend and there is a replica ” Bills trough” next to the bakery. Asked a staff member about it and she told me there is a photo of the original in the Wycheproof Historical Society Flickr page. I found the photo in the Railway Album Photos. I was very excited as this one is not on the list here.

    • billshorsetroughs says:

      Thanks . Patricia got to visit it on a very hot day in February. Cool drink was enjoyed g at the Bakery George

  7. ROGER TOWNLEY says:

    Went to a family reunion in Urana on the 18th March 2017 & the through, the horse, the man & the flock of sheep are still there. We also visited the Urana Courthouse Museum & there are two articles on display from the Weekly Times (25-6-2003 & 9-07-2003) relating to the troughs.
    Photos are available*

  8. Patricia Wilson.m says:

    I have about 120 photos of different troughs in this list and I think the one at Urana is the best presented that I have come across so far. Well done Urana.

  9. Lynn Bills says:

    Hi my name is Lynn Bills, and I have a massive interest in Bills Troughs. I remember my Nana Bills taking us to look at one of the Troughs at Bairnsdale and since then on my travels with work I have seen many. From looking at the list of where they are located I still have a lot to see.
    It fascinates me to think so many people have such a passion for these. I send photos to my family every time I come across one.
    Thank you for this fabulous site that you have.
