Moongalba diary from 1 Jun 1972 to 1976

This Chelsea book-keeping book has a substantial number of journal entries by Kath Walker outlining activities in setting up Moongalba by her and her helpers. The first one dates from 1 June 1972. It begins: 'Bill Mewett & I started clearing the land. Much prickly pear to dig out and destroy. Wet weather preventing our working. Put in three hours'. Some entries have newspaper cuttings included. When Kath left for her New Zealand tour in September 1972, Bill Mewett took over the journal entries. Entries on activities are made by others. Kath's entries become more of a diary as time progresses with personal activities, her health, general observations (like the weather), rather than just what work was done around Moongalba. By the beginning of 1976 most entries are from visitors to Moongalba.
