Sky Country

An ancient story of creation that describes two Ancestral Beings who came down from the Milky Way to create the Trouwerner (Tasmanian) landscape.

Using some traditional language, this extraordinary children’s picture book, filled with stunning illustrations, retells a captivating Ancestral memory dating back to the Ice Age – a period of time when Trouwerner was joined to the Australian mainland. Join Aunty Patsy Cameron as she generously shares the creation story of Trouwerner Country and its people.
