She wishes to share the fascinating facts she discovered concerning the soldiers; convicts; settlers and aborigines, as well as present day life at Western Creek. Visits, letters, historical and geographical research create a kaleidoscope of people and places in the British Isles and the Antipodes. Amazing co-incidences made her feel "Yes! This is for me!"
