The very first thing I remember was Charles Creek – staying there with my uncle Alan Kunoth and my Grandmother Amelia Kunoth.
My mother worked as a domestic servant at the Residency in Alice Springs and later on at Melanka.
Great memories of St Johns Hostel – being the youngest one there I was often spoilt !
