Written By; Gary Wonning

The campground had become rather crowded, the Corroboree was beginning. Native tribes from all over Australia were converging for this important event. It was quickly turning into what seemed like a spiritual track meet.

One hardly had time to observe everything, there were boomerang throwing contests, many ancient tribal dances featuring the customs and costumes of the different Aboriginal tribes, displays of rock art, native food, and talks on the many aboriginal teachings. There will come a time when this songfest will be no longer, the aborigines are losing their native customs and  their way of life.
