Bush Track; They Lie Among Us

I imagined an apocalyptic landscape set on the track opposite Whitegate where I so often took the kids in my trailer to source mulga for the camp's fires. The albino bull that Tony Richardson employed early in his 1970s film version of Ned Kelly inspired the equine touch; the alien intruder curiously sniffing its way towards the kids. I'd seen some footage of sleeping kids abandoned on the roadside in some war-torn European city perimeter.
