    I didn’t know that was the origin of the expression “Hard yakka”. I didn’t even know it was used industrially in the past. It was a travesty that the plants were destroyed and removed from whole areas of the environment.

      I agree, very interesting. They are a piece of the ancient past. Don’t read Don Watson’s book “The Bush”, a very confronting look at what we, as “colonisers” have done to the natural landscape, it’ll make you weep.
