Joe Walley, continuing his story of this area said,

I spent a fair bit of time … cutting bean sticks out through here, even as a kid when my father used to live about half a mile off the estuary side here … it was a very, very important place to the Aboriginal people. This is where they cross into Egg Island going onto the islands over there. The furtherest one was very important to the Aboriginal people, the elders anyway, the men. They had their … annual meeting there … to define the laws for the people that is travelling through. … While they were in session they could never be annoyed or crept up on because they had water all around them. Also in points going back west here and … south, south-west … there are still little freshwater springs through there.’
