In 1916 the Rev James Watson arrived at Warruwi in Arnhem Land, he established the first mission in that area. July this year marked the 100 year anniversary of this event. Many of the people and their families that have worked on the island with the community during this time were invited back for this significant day. People came from all around, and from all states, my family had lived on the island in the 1970’s, my father worked as a community advisor serving the local community as the governance was handed back to Land Councils.
Over 60 people flew in that day on small aircraft, I had wanted to return to the island for a long time. I took my family, first we flew into Darwin where we stayed, and the planes took us out just for the day.
