The story of DJeebahn is the story of the place called Port Hacking NSW. It is the story of the Original People the Dharawal and why and where they lived in and around the Bay. It has a series of photos of traditional Dreaming Stories and in particular the story of the interaction of the Dharawal with Killer Whales who from time to time in the past, came into the Bay. The book also contains examples of traditional Bush Tucker and a list of Dharawal words and phrases. This book is unique. There is no other example of this type before this book was published in 2013. The world we take so much for granted today has little resemblance to the world of our distant ancestors. This is most apparent in Australia. The first people to arrive in Australia some 50,000 years ago would have found a country much cooler and wetter than the Australia of 21st century. Australia was dominated by unfamiliar plants, animals and landform. People arriving here 50,000 years ago would have left the lush tropical world around Indonesia and entered the less abundant forests of Acacia and marsupial mammals of sub-tropical Australia. They would have confronted a range of "Mega Fauna" or giant animals found nowhere else on earth.
