Mr Pidgeon, a Western Port Indigenous tracker, dressed in a green frock coat and beaver hat consults with a koala regarding the whereabouts of the quarry. This is my rendition of the 1840s diary entry by William Thomas, Assistant Protector of Aborigines at Port Phillip, in Bill Gammage’s book, The Biggest Estate on Earth.
