Tony Wins Award at
Spring Poetry Festival
Last week in Perth, local singer/songwriter
Tony Duckett was awarded the Song Lyric
of the Year prize at WA Poets Inc spring
poetry festival for his song “Banjo Strung
Tony said he is delighted with the award.
“There’s a good back story to that song.
A couple of years ago I received a call from
a bloke in trouble with alcohol and drugs.
He was a 70-year-old Rastafarian –
dreadlocks and all - living in a humpy
caravan, with two dingoes for pets, and an
old banjo strung with all sorts of wire.
He was an artist but had not done any
paintings for 3 or 4 years because drugs and
alcohol had him by the throat. I spent some
time with him and got him into hospital.
At home that night I was unsettled, so I
started playing my guitar just to relax, and
the song came almost fully formed in less
than an hour.
That song is pretty special to me. It’s got a
lot of me in it as well, so I’m pleased with
And by the way, that bloke is clean and
sober now and back painting.”
Tony’s CD is for sale at the Walpole
Resource Centre. Proceeds from the CD sales Pictured above:

he’s a highway he’s a river he's a chainsaw in the bush;
he’s a tank stand on the old farm when the summer
he’s a swaggie he’s a gypsy he's a cowboy, but he’s a war
when the drink and the drugs burn him down.
He’s a young boy in an old car and the rust holes of

He’s a banjo strung with wire playing mem’ries

He said, “Son, it’s so simple once you make up your mind to
But it’s taken me years and my share of tears
just to make up my mind to let go of my fears.
It’s the Irish and Blackfella song in my bones,”

Jack Jennings For SOFS
If they are seen basking in the sun or swimming in
the shallows, it is vital that they are left in peace
because they need to recuperate and if they are
harassed they may become distressed and leave
Sub-Antarctic seals in particular are not accustomed
to people and they may react aggressively when
approached. They can inflict a nasty bite similar to
that of a large dog and this is another reason why it
is important to keep a safe distance from them -
at least 5 to 10 metres.”
Ms Birkin said; "it was natural behaviour for a seal
to laze around on sandy beaches, take a dip in the
water and repeatedly wave its' flippers in the air.
This behaviour may appear as though the seal is in
distress, but it is how they regulate their body
We ask people encountering seals on the beach to
refrain from pouring water on them, pushing them
out to sea or attempting to rescue them.
People should also be mindful that diseases carried
by seals and sea lions could also potentially be
transferred to humans or dogs, so they should
maintain a safe distance from the animal at all

HIKI G ALO G THE BIBBULMU WALK TRAIL
By John Kolo
With springtime arriving in our Walpole region when flowers and animals are taking advantage of the first sunny days,
my daughter Lotte with six-months-old Bryn, husband David and I took off for a hike along the Bibbulmun Walk Trail
from Mt Pingerup to Mt Chance on a 7 km walk through one of the nicest land scapes in our region.
Loaded with our camping gear, and Bryn safely carried in a baby backpack, we walked leisurely in easy stages in a
northerly direction towards the campsite at the foot of Mt Chance. Bryn barely slept on this walk, because he rather
wanted to touch and smell many of the colourful wildflowers he saw from his perch in the backpack.
As can be expected on any sunny day, we soon came across a beautiful tiger snake that was sunning itself on a bare
patch of soil. Having been surprised, it slithered away from us, but to our astonishment came back in a large arc to
where we stood, as if wanting to attack us head-on. “Stand still” was all I said, because a snake will not attack if you
stand still. Indeed, this one had only one thing on its mind, namely to find the entry to its home only a metre distant
from us, where its five feet length rapidly disappeared into a hole in the ground. This is the reason why snakes can
disappear within a blink of the eye.
Equally interesting was a group of feral pigs we saw some
30 metres from the Bibbulmun Walk Trail, as seen in
these photo's opposite.
A large boar together with two sows and a bunch of piglets
were ploughing with their snouts through the soft wetland
soil, looking for roots and bulbs and delicious gilgies.
In the middle of the Trail was a wallow where the pigs
would have their mud bath to keep themselves healthy
We moved stealthily along the Trail as not to be seen
or heard by the pigs, because all feral pigs are potentially aggressive,
particularly when having piglets.
“Stand still” I whispered, “and go for their eyes if they attack us”.
This would also be my advice for other bush walkers who might encounter
Luckily the wind was carrying our scent away from the pigs, so they did
not notice us.
Nevertheless, we had our pocket knives at the ready, should they have attacked us.
Having in recent years encountered numerous feral pigs along the Bibbulmun Walk Trail, and forest tracks in the
Walpole region, I am of the strongest opinion that feral pigs should not be allowed to share the Trail with walkers. The
Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) is aware of the problems caused by feral pigs, and employs pig
trappers to eradicate them. I urge anyone who sees pigs or fresh pig tracks or diggings to notify the DEC, so that
trappers can erect traps in such locations and get rid of the pigs.
Walkers and feral pigs, simply will never mix.
