McElholum road trip - up the Centre 2012 travel blog






Headed back up to Merl, 40km, for weaving activity organised via the rangers with two of the local Indigenous women, 'Susan' and 'Clara". Kids completely absorbed as they helped 'strip' the pandanus leaves. Then we made brown dye and yellow dye by crushing two different plant roots, black dye with leaves. The stripped leaves were dyed and we then made our own bracelets. Afternoon and evening by the pool
