Our Place, Childhood memories of Gubba Woods

Gubba and his family lived on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River near the New South Wales town of Hay. They lived there with other Aboriginal families and shared their food and lifestyle with one another. He often comes back with his wife and children to his place on the river where he truly feels at home.

Gubba takes many children on tours and shows them tools and weapons such as grinding stones, boomerangs, spearheads, coolamons and hammer stones. He feels a connection with the land and asks that others listen to the country around them and take time to hear what their elders say.
