The Resting Place by Gerritje Galloway

“‘The Resting Place’ has been comprehensively researched and written as an introduction and celebration of a land and its people in a constantly changing environment. It is a story of the Indigenous people and the coming together of all Australians as one, sharing their dynamic culture, heritage, traditions and the spiritual link of their ancestral lands.

‘The Resting Place embraces a local history of the traditional lands of the Gubbi Gubbi people and Burpengary Creek in southeast Queensland.” – Gerritje Galloway

This book contains many photographs, most of them in colour, a table of contents that list chapters like The Bunya Pine, the Gubbi Gubbi, fishing techniques and equipment, pioneers and the first European colonists, schooling, official records, looking back, moving forward and the Gubbi Gubbi people now.

The book includes a figure guide to the photographs and illustrations, many of whom are sourced from the Galloway Collection, Further Reading/Bibliography and a comprehensive Index.
