Duck Creek, Mt Druitt and the mighty Wanderers!

The original Aboriginal inhabitants of the Auburn area are the Darug people. The Darug nation (also spelt Dharuk, Dharug and Daruk) is a language group of Aboriginal Australians who are the traditional custodians of much of what is modern day Sydney.

Duck Creek was used by Aboriginal people as one of the meeting places for the four main tribes of the Sydney area – Darug, Gandangara, Eora and Tharawal (also called Dharawal). Darug and Gandangara are the inland people whilst Eora and Tharawal are coastal people. The area around Duck River was a place where sea people met forest people and exchanges took place. Also used as a place for healing and other ceremonies.
