Koori people move to Sydney

Groups of Koori people from outside Sydney are living in Sydney, from the Illawarra region, the Burragorang Valley and the Hunter River. The Illawarra people often camp at La Perouse, the others camp in the boat sheds at Circular Quay near the site of the Opera House. These people are drawn to the city because they are suffering increasing poverty and dislocation on their own lands. Their demands for land and boats attract as much attention as their drinking. Goodall, Invasion to Embassy, p 89.
