Timber Creek Series

This work is part of a series done after a trip to remote Timber Creek, in Northern Territory – Ngaliwurru and Nungali country.

Sue and I and a small group of students, were sung onto country by Lorraine and escorted to the sacred caves of Tarikka’s grandfather. They took us to a river, where a smoking ceremony was performed and permission from the ancestors given so we could swim.

“No crocodiles in this waterhole today”.

We ate kangaroo tail from the coals and marvelled at these people; the oldest living culture on the planet. Still alive and strong and still deeply connected to the land.
I slowly began to see.

The Victoria River winds its way through desert and gorge like a snake. In the ‘dry season’ it’s the only source of water in this remote area. But when the rains do come, it bursts its banks and floods the entire desert area creating a tangle of creeks, tributaries, pathways and animal tracks in multiple layers that are seen and unseen.

Sit in the sand with me, feel the sunshine on your skin, and smell the scent of eucalyptus and wild honey.
So many stories are here.
