Photographer's Note

The name Gerringong is an Aboriginal word meaning "fearful place". Some say it was the name our First Australians gave to it upon seeing Captain Cook's ship sail up the coast. Today, it's not so fearful, and still very beautiful and untouched. Gerringong is about 2 hours drive south of Sydney and apart from having some beautiful coast, was also famous for its dairy farming. This land holds special significance to me as it's where my maternal grandfather's family settled and began dairy farming upon migrating from Northern Ireland.
