Looking Back – University of Sydney Anthology 2016 – Barangaroo by Robyn Edwards



Barangaroo by Robyn Edwards


The first woman Barangaroo

Proud Eora warrior

Fishing Gadigal coves and inlets

In a bark nowie1

With paddle and line

Small firelight crackles inside the canoe

Kindles an orange spark,

Barangaroo’s song flames the water,

Stirs the land.

1 nowie – a small canoe
