A dark brown metal spur with leather and buckle boot attachment.
Wave Hill spur

This spur was made for respected stockman Peter ‘Sabu’ Sing, who was born at Delamere station in 1940 to a Wardaman mother and Chinese father. He was fostered as a child by Tom Fisher, manager of Wave Hill station when Aboriginal stockmen and their families walked off in a strike for equal wages in 1966.

The spur was made by Fred Gutte, a blacksmith at Wave Hill during the 1940s and 50s. Wave Hill spurs were prized items on stock routes and stations across northern Australia.
