  • My Grandmother use to take us to gather food from the billabong when I was little. We would help her hunt and gather things along the billabong. It is still an important part of my story about living off the land and we still go and gather food that way today. This is what the billabong looks like after the wet season and the water has pushed everything into it from when the billabong when the river was connected. when the river goes down the billabong stays with the all the fish left behind. We catch them and they are good to eat
