Between two worlds
"Yarra is my Father`s country. Me no leave it, Yarra, my Father`s country." Barak
As you walk this land, remember Barak, standing proud as an Aboriginal leader of the Wurundjeri people. Remember him, a man caught between two worlds, but able to bridge both, as ambassador, diplomat, survivor, fighter, humanitarian, story teller, artist ; a man for, and of his people and protector of Wurundjeri traitions and culture.
Remember him, when the wattles bloom along Badger Creek, where the Kookaburra`s call echoes across the hills saturated in yellow, in this, country of Barak, bringing us together, to never forget those who have walked before.
