Father Dillon

Koori people in the Burragorang Valley ask a local priest, Father Dillon, to support them in their quest to keep the land they are living on. This leads to a local subscription to raise enough money to buy a 28Ha farm on the junction of the Cox’s and Wollondilly rivers. This supports a large community of Koori people until the 1920’s.
