This is not a story about the army take-over of our peninsular. Those events are however mentioned in the book about our village – which is of course a great Christmas-gift option for family and friends!

The two neighbouring villages to our east, Bundabah and Pindimar, bear names of Aboriginal origin. In 1983, the North Arm Cove community felt that our village too should be known by the Aboriginal name for the area: “Baromee”. But as...
