The Gully

This ugly monolith sits at the edge of an old swimming lake in The Gully (officially Frank Walford Park) and behind the Katoomba Aquatic Centre.

The Gully was given back in 2005 to the Gundungurra and Darug peoples after they were forcibly removed for the building of Catalina Raceway (remnants still remain) in 1957. You can read more about this area here: Catalina Park/The Gully and here: Blue Mountains Local Studies Blog

I recently used this grotto for a performance work, you can see stills of the dvd on my blog: - '1 million years' is currently showing at NCCA in Darwin.
