Jacko Campbell

Jacko Campbell arrives as a 10 year old at the Salt Pan Creek reserve. He recalls catching prawns in hessian bags in the creek using stringy bark torches as they waded through the water. The boys could sell them for 9 Pence a quart or just catch themselves a feed. Jacko recalled, 'We’d go up when we wanted a feed of anything, 'fish and all that! But it was a terrible place for sharks there, in the murky water!'
