A special song called I am Australian, written in 1987 by Bruce Woodley (words and lyrics) and Dobe Newton (words), sums up our history in a moving way.

For the last week a fierce bushfire has been raging at Condoblin near the Warrumbungles, destroying homes, livestock and wildlife.
This newspaper report reveals that something similar was happening in 1888, on land owned by the Rouse family, and on Breelong, owned by Mr John Mawbey.

The Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday 23 October 1888
Gilgandra, Monday. Extensive bush fires are raging on the Warrumbungle Mountains, Rouse's country; and also on the Castlereagh, on BREELONG, Mr Mowbray's (MAWBEY'S) country.
