About the work


“This is Ngarrgooroon Country, down near Halls Creek way. That's the Gawarre, big mountain, high mountain, y'know?
That’s where the old people bin’ living in the old days. The old people used to stop there, in those hills, like a home.”
Gawarre is the name of an outstation area in Purnululu National Park. The word also occurs as a general Gija word
meaning "cliff" or "range of steep hills"
