    Yeh I reckon so ...

    Plenty of information there even if you only absorb some of it it may come in handy.

    He has some good references to Bush Medicines as well.

    His tv series back in the 80's were one of the best things the abc ever put on air imo. His short series on explorers aired in the mid 90's were so well researched, the one i could not get out of my mind was the lost Dutch "tribe" on the upper west coast prior to the First Fleet. Sadly the history revisionists that have stuck their heads up of late would likely hold back "our" abc airing quality viewing like this again. Re Rory O Donohughe, saw him at a funeral a few years ago, he looked fit as a fiddle but sadly died not that long after.:*sip*

    If the lost Dutch tribe on the west coast is of interest to you, you may be interested in the work of this guy.
    He went to my local High School, a few years in front of me.
    In my sister’s year. Always carried a copy of Mao’s little Red Book.

    Funny though, his Wikipedia entry mentions his interest in radical politics, but fails to mention the time he and a co conspirator planted a bomb in the Perth Dept.of Labour and National Service !

    I remember the manhunt that went on for him. (They were identified early as the perpetrators)
    A mate of mine was mistakenly detained on suspicion he was Rupert.
    There use to be graffiti on the Claremont subway “Free Rupert Gerritson”
