Seriously doubt the Bribie Island Chamber of Commerce would sign off on that advertising campaign.

You silly pedantic old bugger, you missed the salient point of the whole thing.

Which is, how could the same driftwood still be in the same place from a photo taken likely in the 60's until now?

The answer is the Bribie Pine, Callitris sp. A native conifer with chemical compounds that render the wood incredibly impervious to decay. At that particular location, as well as on large areas of Bribie there are stands of Bribie Pine. It loves sandy soils and there is strong evidence that traditional aboriginal cool temp fire management was conducive to Callitris development.

Don Watson, in his excellent book The Bush, waxes lyrical for some time about the incredible properties and uses of Callitris sp, which is found all over Aus, except Tas.

Seriously, what a bunch of clueless tourists white people are in Australia. Still, after 200 years we've got no fcuking idea.

I think a testing/initiation system, such as the one that Bundjalung elders used to use here at Lennox, would be a beautiful idea.

If you fail, you leave.

Not really, they got shipped off to missions and pommy social climbers who can't surf own all the expensive real estate.

Well, the wives can surf baby food, the blokes all stay up late watching premier league and walking around the next day with hangovers and hangdog expression.

Have they built up that headland yet? That magical place really needs a suburb on top of it. Add to the history and mystique of the place.

Hard to say Slob.
It could have been knocked over in a storm or cyclone, either there or at another location and washed up there.

It could have fallen over as a result of an undercut bank from a storm surge.

Who knows.
