I have now added a copy of the most recent book - A Story of Capital Hill which outlines not only the general history of the area which consisted of parts two of the Gura Bung Dhaura (stony ground - Ngunawal) - known to Europeans as Camp and Kurrajong Hills, but also has sections on Early Canberra. The graphics were carried out by Robina Gugler and editing by Trish Frei. The second 'book' is revised chapters for Builders of Canberra 1909-1929. This book was first published in the early 1990s and the revised edition will add more information, maps, photographs etc. The draft will be reduced in size when the final work is published around 2013 but gives an overview of the times. In the section on Reports as well as information on Stirling Park (Gura Bung Dhaura hills - former Westlake) I have added a thorough report on the Melrose Valley by Dr Karen Williams. This report which was carried out gratis by all involved including experts on various areas such as geology, local history of the area, Ngunawal elders, Ruth & Don and others (all acknowledged in the report) is thorough and includes maps, photographs, drawings of Aboriginal finds etc.
