Father to all,

home to many.

One thousand-years-old and

here before many.

Shiny as day

and higher than clouds.

Shelter of First Nations people

Boomerang. Coolamon. Clapping sticks.

Smooth skin and grown

into our ground.


Beautiful in colour.

Blood red like a fire in the dark night.

The river gum tree

is a dreaming place

for the calm and peaceful wind.

Home to the animals

that live in the hollows

liked bat, bird, and more living things.
