Guided Rainforest Walks
with Ernie Raymont.

Atherton Blue Gum uses Ngadjonji elder, Ernie Raymont, grandson of Molly Raymont. He conducts guided walking tours within the "Malanda Falls Rainforest Reserve", explaining many of the traditional Ngadjonji relationships to the rainforest environment.

We, the white people of Australia, are not proud of some of the actions taken against the indigenous people of Australia, in the early years. Ngadjonji Elder, Emma Johnston, is also the daughter of Molly Raymont. Read her account of the "Butchers Creek massacre" around 1880.

Butchers Creek is on the Atherton Tablelands, in Far North Queensland, Australia. It is now a small community at the base of Mt Bartle Frere, which is the highest mountain in the state of Queensland.

The links below supply information about Ernie's family as well as his people and their lands.
