'The emu used to drink at this pool. And even in the dark, kangaroos and people used to drink there too.There used to be about five or six Aboriginal people come there with spears and boomerangs, and hitting sticks, whatever they can get. One day, while the emu was drinking water they decided they wanted to get a emu.'
