The aborigines of Australia

Written By: Gary Wonning

The final week of the walkabout was about to begin, we were leaving Monday morning for a six-day trip to Darwin on the top end. 7:30 am found us loading our gear on a trailer behind one of Toddy’s twenty-four passenger buses. As a final duty, we all chipped in money for what was thought to be enough beer to supply us for the thirsty journey that lie ahead.

The  first of many stops was Barrow Creek, where we would begin to learn much of Australia’s colorful past. It seems that in the early days, aborigines had killed the line master and his men. As a result,the Calvary was called in, the resulting battle killed all the aborigine men, the women and children were taken to Skull Creek and killed there.
