I grew up on a family property, “Yambulla”, between Moree and Goondiwindi, NSW.

The virtues of a simple life, interdependent with nature, animals, a caring community and seven siblings, are deeply engraved.

Like many of that era I was educated at home with correspondence school before attending boarding school in Sydney. That meant six years years of travelling on ‘The North West Mail’ the 13 hour night school train.
