OK - this place is on Nicholson. The four tracks were the way four different tribes travelled every year - back when I was a little fella. They all came to this part for important business. Desert country all around - and those people walked a long long way. They knew where the waterholes were - and could find the bush tucker on their journey. They knew that desert country well. Then after all that travelling, they would camp here to talk - all Elders talking together. After they had finished they would invite the local people for dancing corroboree and singing and good times.
