Here I was sitting on the beach watching the incoming tide smash into the wrecked remains of the SS Dicky at Caloundra and along the horizon comes this massive cargo ship off in the distance. Makes you realise how punishing and unforgiving the sea can be in the right mood. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Caloundra or Cullawanda - Place of beach tree (Kalowen). It is not known which language this pronunciation is. Although traditional life has long gone, Caloundra Region is rich in Aboriginal heritage, in the form of significant sites and place names. A number of families of Undumbi decent still reside within Caloundra and have traditional ties to this country. They are the Dalton, McEvoy and Cleary families. It is recorded in Caloundra’s early history that Aboriginal families lived in the Duck Hole Creek area, Golden Beach and somewhere in Arthur Street, Shelly Beach Prior to European settlement this area of the coastline was the traditional homelands for the Undumbi/Undanbi people. who were from the Gubbi Gubbi language group. Undumbi territory ran along the coast from the Pine River to Noosa. The Mooloolah Valley area marks the approximate boundary between the Nalbo, to the west and Undumbi lands. The coastal regions of Caloundra are within the boundaries of the Undumbi people’s traditional country. Their territory covered the areas from Brisbane River, north to Noosa and 16klm's westward. Physical evidence still abounds in the region, including the Glass House Mountains, which holds very strong spiritual and cultural significance to the traditional owners. Other tribes who’s lands now are encompassed by Caloundra’s boundaries are: the Nalbo ( Glass House Mountains & Blackall Range escarpment areas, including Bald Knob) Dallambara or Dalla (who’s country was in the area of present day Conondale, Bellthorpe , Baroon Pocket, Kenilworth and Obi Obi districts) and the Gubbi Gubbi ( Jimna Range and parts of Conondale Ranges area, upper Mary River area) Undumbi, Gubbi Gubbi and Dulingbara people were collectively referred to as Bungarnuba meaning Saltwater people by neighbouring clans. Point Cartwright, Moffat Head and Wickham Point had a number of recorded pecked engravings on the shore platforms in the early 1930s, including emu, kangaroo and numerous dingo footprints, along with those of some small birds and a human footprint Over the years the natural course of erosion by sea wave action and sun drying caused the engraved sandstone to flake away, eliminating all trace of these relics. These headlands were once dreaming areas and very sacred to the Undumbi people Maiba (Rive Chestnut) indicated a prevailing aspect of the Undumbi Territory. Undambi people used a dull red ochre painted on their weapons as a distinctive marking. Baroon Pocket was a significant meeting place for most of the tribes throughout South East Queensland. Baroon Pocket Bonyi Bonyis were a forum for the settlement of tribal disputes, sharing of stories, cultural ceremonies were organised and performed and where forward planning was undertaken regarding the movement of clans in relation to the availability of food resources. Large numbers of Aboriginal people lived in the resource rich Sunshine Coast area until the late 1800s and early 1900s, when they were forced from their traditional lands by the encroaching white settlers and many from this area were moved to Barambah Reserve (Cherbourg), near Kingaroy, Yarrabah (near Kuranda) and Palm Island. European contact 1843 - Dr Stephen Simpson, the Crown Lands Commissioner of Red Bank, blazed a track over the rugged Conondale Range to the upper reaches of the Wide Bay River, later called the Mary River. Also with Simpson were, Duramboi (James Davis), Wandi (David Bracefell) the German missionary, Christopher Eipper and a group of border Police and convicts. On March 20th the party camped on Hinka Booma Flats opposite Kenilworth. Duramboi, who lived with the Aborigines for approximately 14 years, told Eipper, "these flats belong to Ubie Ubie, a famous warrior whose grounds extend to Mr McKenzie's Station." (Conondale Station). At the time of white settlement, Ubie Ubie was the leading warrior of the Dallambara, who also owned the country about Baroon Pocket. The Dallambara gained ownership of the Obi Obi Gorge and Narrows after a big fight, driving the Nalbo people from their Obi Obi lands. The name Obi Obi Creek probably refers to Ubie, the Dallambara tribesman. 1843 - In December, explorer Ludwig Leichhardt and John Archer, of Durundur Station (near present day Woodford) and Mr Waterstone, travelled to Baroon Pocket, Maleny, to witness an Aboriginal Bonyi Bonyi Festival. These gatherings were held every three years, to coincide with the heavy tri-annual fruiting of the Bunya pine tree, where representatives from tribes from the northern Burnett River districts and the

It was a regular hike along the Palisades: Out of Doors in Arlington Hiking in Arlington by Dorothy Coble Dreese I was pleased to see that the National Capital Parks has selected an area in Arlington for one of its spring hikes. "Hike along the scenic Virginia shore of the Potomac River from Chain Bridge to Roslyn for a rugged 4.5 miles over an unimproved trail. Sturdy shoes are essential.” This might be fun to try! There are wooded sections in most parts of the county where hiking is possible but we must observe trespassing signs, and when in doubt inquire. Enthusiastic hikers never confine activities to daytime or fair days only. Hike in the moonlight! Walk in the rain and bring back the nostalgic memories which haunt you ever after on a rainy day. Spring rains especially, bring out earthy smells. Cross country hike! The unexpected is often found off the beaten path. Once I discovered the rare-to-find oven bird's nest on such a hike in Arlington. Walking around the block is a good excuse in disagreeable weather. Most any street branching off Military Road will lead to wooded areas and paths. One of my favorites is the trail starting from the stream which crosses the northern part of Military Road. Beginning at the power house and following the stream to the river, allow one hour for a leisurely walk over and back. Trails cross and recross all over this wooded area and will be there until construction of houses or the Memorial Highway interfere. One of these trails edges along the high cliffs of the Palisades. From here fine views of Washington, the river and Chain Bridge are now possible with the absence of leaves. Fallen trees from construction of the Parkway may obstruct the path in a few places. Perhaps you are looking for a more primitive walk. Enter North Randolph Street, off Glebe Road, below Military Road. Continue to bottom of the hill, park if driving, go down by the new pumping station, swing left over a small stream, then right, keeping on the left-hand side of Pimmet Run. The path bears left leaving the stream and eventually comes out in the Chesterbrook Woods. Circle back to to Glebe Road and on to Randolph Street. Not recommended for inexperienced hikers. Some of the trail is rugged but rewarding. Two or three hours should be given for this hike. Never overlook Lubber Run Park. This was one of the favorite outing places of the Chester Bowles family when they lived in Virginia. Turn off on North Columbus Street from Arlington Boulevard and watch for the parking space to the left. There are short trails in this more civilized picnicking area, but a short trail can be retraced for a longer hike. If exercise is the motive, it can be had here. Allow 15 minutes of brisk walking to the mile. It is well to use strong soap on returning from the out of doors, to prevent poison ivy. When leaves are out we can easily remember the scout rule to touch only five friendly fingers. Poison ivy is not now always recognizable. What does one wear on a hike? Step outside. Decide like the Chinese, whether it is a one, two or three coat day. It is wise to take an extra sweater, or scarf can be tucked in a pocket and worn at a sudden change of weather. Better be warm than cold. High heels are not in keeping but sturdy shoes are desirable and only sneakers with arch supports should be worn. Should we hike just for our health's sake? No harm in that but who wants to close off the senses to a world of excitement and adventure. True, an elk or bear will probably never be seen in Arlington but there are other possibilities just as thrilling. Bare trees reveal many secrets. A hollow tree may hide wild animals. Tap gently on one of these trees. An owl might poke his head out to see the cause of the disturbance. Once three flying squirrels ran up the tree for me. Watch for a praying mantis nest, that bundle of grey fiber, dangling from a bush or tree. Look for a moth or butterfly emerging from winter quarters. It is an excellent time to identify birds nests. Note the position and construction, then consult a book on reaching home. Bit by bit, knowledge can change a novice into an expert. These are the things which add zest to hiking.
