My Name is Sarah Thomas I was born in Quirindi and raised in Murrurundi which means (Valley in the Mountains) growing up along the songlines of the great dividing range, Kamilaroi country NSW.
My family connection to the south coast began in the early 1970's when my grandparents moved to the area from Sydney, building our first family home on the waterfront of Mummuga Lake.
It was my second home as a child and a special place for my family.
I have always loved the saltwater and the vast unknown knowledge of the oceans ancient secrets, its our responsibility to look after it, maintaining cultural heritage and creating a sustainable future.
It's Important give back to the land and sea that provides so much for us.
