In 2010, after drought breaking rains caused flooding through the center of Australia, a rare occurrence happened. With the Cooper Creek flowing at a depth of more than 4 metres across the Birdsville Track, the Ferry was put to use. We had the privilege of being "in the neighbourhood", and just had to see it for ourselves. We'd like to share it with you. I wrote the lyrics for this song sitting in the camp area behind the Lyndhurst Hotel. The music was "in my head" for a long time before I finally had the chance to record it.
