  • About

    "These are the dreams no one can ever take away from us no matter how much they try to brainwash us, with religion and other things.We couldn't wait until school was over so we could go down to our favourite swimming hole. To swim and catch yabbies, which we cooked right there on the river bank, how can we forget these dreams from the past which will be in our hearts forever."

    Aunty Elaine Russell 1994
