Hello, my name is Uncle Colin Campbell and I am a member of ATSIDNQ, I currently live in Cleveland.
Uncle Colin is a proud Noonuccal man from Stradbroke Island. Born to a fisherman, his dad fished for over 40 years at Amity Point.
His storyline spans from Bribie Island to Stradbroke Island.
Uncle Colin remembers the good old days of living off the shores and enjoying the simple lifestyle.
Uncle Colin left school at the tender age of 14 years to go and help his dad fish. Fishing was the male leadership role of looking after and providing for their family. He also worked for a mining company on Straddie for 35 years.
Uncle Colin setup camp at Bribie Island when he first retired however, he now resides in Cleveland. He has been in Cleveland for the past 30 years.
