Kowaha's leap

North of Mackay is this statue of a tragic aborigine. In the 1860s Kowaha was hounded by the police, and fled up this moutain. Rather than be captured she leaped to her death clutching her baby in her arms. The child survived, was raised by white settlers and lived to the age of 94! Nearby is a great pub with a piano in the bar. Lynda and Billy played duets together while I sketched this. The music added to the poignacy of the afternoon.
