Jack Campbell escapes reserve with his family

Jack Campbell, living on Burnt Bridge Reserve in northern NSW, escapes with his family to avoid harassment by the APB and settles in Sydney. Rather than live at the closely police supervised reserve at La Perouse, they hear about, and move to, the non-reserve campsite at Salt Pan Creek. Here several of the community leaders have bought housing blocks and are paying them off, which gives much greater protection from interference by officials than when living on a government reserve. There they join other refugees from APB control, like Patty Pitman who has been expelled from reserves for defying the manager. Goodall, Invasion to Embassy, p 145.
