  1. Hi Jill

    – love the *wood burning stove *phrase…sounds like the wood stove burns the meals, made me laugh! – last pic…is it a wallaroo or an eastern grey kangaroo? – well done, lots of work by everyone – p

    • If you reckon it is an Eastern Grey, then it most likely is! Our Eastern Greys don’t generally appear to be as big as this one. I will change it. Wood burning or slow combustion stove are the terms I grew up with. What do you call it? By the way there were no meals burnt in the making of the meals at Bimblebox. All skilled at making the best of food! J

  2. I have enjoyed the opportunity to be involved in a small way and follow the progress of the Project. It is truly inspiring to think that so many people have been involved in documenting the reserve and all it has to offer here and now for the future. A true indication of the Australian spirit at work through art. Congratulations to you all. Therese Wilkins
