Paper Bark Tree at the Corella River

Paperbarks live for many years.
This tree would be over 100 years old.
It would have seen many fishermen and barbecues and campfires.
Under its branches there would have been sleep-outs, camps and drinking of beer after dining on fire grilled fish and turtle.

The rope shows children swinging into the water and having fun.
The Tree would have laughed with youth as they swam and climbed the huge branches

The tree has survived droughts and floods and stands proud and tall
