“The River... it makes me happy. I mean, it’s where I’d rather be, other than home ... We come out here every weekend ... so we can get away from shops, phones, internet ... It means everything to people to try and provide … Teach young ones how to fish and hunt ... Is the Fitzroy River and it’s people going to benefit from those developments?”.
