  • Wherever you are in Australia, the sound of a didgeridoo can take you back 40,000 years or so, it just sounds ancient.

    When the person playing it is covered in the ochre from his country it looks ancient.

    When it all occurs at the wonderful saltwater freshwater festival to celebrate all things Aboriginal on Australia Day (or as Aboriginal people would say - survival day), priceless.
