Comment on ANZAC Oval art gallery good for Mall traders: Chamber by Evelyne Roullet.

Yes, Trevor, exception of cafes, hotels and a supermarket, the CBD is dead because tourists do not have to go to the CBD to find clothing, hats, souvenirs, music, jewellery, books etc.
They find it all in the tourists attractions: Desert Park, Telegraph Station, Royal Flying Doctor.
Once upon a time (like in a fairy tale) a tour guide will take his/her customers to do their shopping in the Mall.

ANZAC Oval art gallery good for Mall traders: Chamber
I agree with James T Smerk, not only are there classes dedicated to this for a longtime, but Greg Bicknell should know that you cannot have school excursions in an Aboriginal cultural precinct with mixed boys and girls of different age and kin/skin groups.
I had two bad experiences, one in Panorama Guth and one in Melbourne museum (school trip from ALice High School for the premiere of The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith in 1978).
If my maths is still OK, this makes 40 years that students have been exposed to Aboriginal culture.

The stolen child who went to university
@ David, Posted February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm: “We need to get some things straight here.
If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.

@ Alex: I think that unless we sit with all our different sources, we will never agree on this point, as even our government states that Cook claimed Australia.
