    Peacock

    Favorite thing: If you can't fall asleep because of that baby that keeps crying, don't fret it's probably not a baby - it's the peacock! He could make the most eerie sound, but he did give up after a while and I could go to sleep.

    Favorite thing: We of the Never Never is the title of the novel written by Jeannie Gunn.
    She was one of the first european women in the Territory when she came here in1902 from Melbourne.
    Her husband was the manager of Ellsey station. Unfortunately he died after which Jeannie returned to Melbourne and wrote about her experiences in her book. It was published in 1908 and gives good descriptions of the life on a station.
    It is an outback literature classic and was made into a movie in 1981.
