THE NAMING OF CANBERRA - READER'S VIEWS


Just a quick one... Another entry to the Naming of Canberra collection of old newspaper clippings. It's not a unique view of Canberra's original meaning as Aboriginal 'A woman's breasts' describing Mount Ainsley and Black Mountain are common but interesting because of naming the Canberra Plain 'Nugungahleen' and mentioning a 'tribal phallic stone' nestled in a recess on Black Mountain...
