I am often asked to recommend a history which will contain information about a certain pioneer and in many cases, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF TEACHERS, there isn't one. T.P.Durack is not mentioned in A DREAMTIME OF DROMANA so he therefore is included under my 1988 bicentennial pledge to acknowledge pioneers who have escaped the attention of municipal or local historians.

THE DURACK FAREWELL IN JANUARY 1911.
I couldn't find the birth record of the child born during their time in Dromana because I'd searched from 1907 to 1910, not expecting the birth to have taken place so soon before their departure. Luckily the birth was mentioned by the child herself soon after her 10th birthday in 1921.
