I grew up in the bush landscapes of the Atherton Tableland and Herberton. With my brother and sisters, I would walkabout on
the reddish brown soil, collecting small berries. They were an absolute delight. I also loved bunya nuts and bush passionfruit.
Sometimes we would visit the settlement and the Herberton range, and there were other bush fruit available including what we
call bush plums and chinky apples. Herberton to me was a place of fruitful land.
