IMG_0246IMG_0241Bangalow, NSW – a name derived from Aboriginal Bundjalung language for a low hill or the palm tree, common in the subtropical forests where Widjabul people lived for thousands of years. Today, the whole community is developing an educational parkland around an old swimming hole on Byron Creek where a concrete pool was built in 1924. It is a peaceful spot, still with tall trees, bubbling creek and memories of countless generations – respect for the ghosts of the past.
