Describes the original inhabitants as '... tribes of wandering Aborigines' p. 25; states any Aboriginal people who happened to be on a coach would have to act as 'gatekeeper' - opening and shutting gates along the route p. 124; mentions an Aboriginal passenger noting the attitudes of coach drivers towards 'bullockies' p. 129; states that not even '... attacks of hostile and reputedly cannibalistic Aborigines could halt the coaches - as long as there were plenty of travellers to pay the fairs, and mail subsidies big enough to underwrite operating costs' p. 177-178; describes town names being derived from Aboriginal words p. 201
