Scott Rimington and Annie Cridland

Talking Creeks Oral History Project

It was an ad in the paper for “a Noosa house in Bardon” that attracted Scott and Annie’s attention, but it was the house’s proximity to the creek that clinched it for them. “Once I saw the creek, that was very special, to have a creek in your back yard!”
So began their love affair with the on-again, off-again creek – a torrent after rain, at other times, a polluted puddle. Always demanding. And so also began their relationship with SOWN, which has nurtured their knowledge and sustained their ardour for many years.
