Traditional camp and meeting place in the Inala area. Stone artifacts found here suggest this was a tool-making and camping area in pre-Contact times.In the 1980s, stone artifacts were found along Boss Creek, particularly in Hock Davis Park and Kev Hooper Park. Boss Creek then runs east to Hanley’s Creek and thus into Blunder Creek swamp land in Archerfield Wetlands.This site continues to be an important Aboriginal recreational and meeting place today, seeing increased use for Aboriginal events and meetings since the 1960s, when many Aboriginal families again came to live in this area.
