- We have been spending a lot of time at Nobby’s Beach with clients doing surfing lessons the last couple of months.
Have you heard the story of the kangaroo that lives in Nobby’s?
Some people that are educated in Awabakal history believe that this story is men’s business, so proceed with that in mind.
A very long time ago, when there were still giant sized animals around, all the various animals within the area would separate into two groups – one group being the females and the other the males.
They all lived together very peacefully and happily.
One day a large male kangaroo attacked a female wallaby.
This was against the law.
He was banished from the kangaroo group forever.
After a long chase by the wallabies the kangaroo reached Muloobinba, the place of the sea ferns, now called Newcastle.
As he entered the sea, he thought about how lucky he was to be able to slip away from the wallabies that chased him.
The wallabies thought that he had drowned.
But the kangaroo had swum to Nobbys Island and entered the tall rocky outcrop, making sure that he was out of sight of everyone.
He is still there to this day, but he won't come out because he is never sure if it is safe for him from the angry wallabies.
Sometimes he gets upset and jumps around inside his prison. When his giant tail crashes against the earth, it makes the rocks fall and the ground tremble.
Some believe this is what caused the 1989 earthquake.
