In the outback the Australian Aboriginal

  • In the outback the Australian Aboriginal tribe sat in a circle and told stories of the dreamtime. These stories would help explain how the creatures had come to inhabit the land

  • -cruisers that those irritatingly persistent British drove all over the sacred land. The Aboriginals recalled the tale of the Drunken Wombat that hat hotwired a landcruiser belongi
