    This segment is the third part of 'Jack's Fortunate Life'. During the university holidays, eighteen year-old Jack Featherstone went to work in the wheat town of Temora in inland New South Wales. Jack remembers this time in Temora as one of the best times of his life. Later, Jack would periodically return to Temora to escape the stresses of life elsewhere. Now, in his eighties, Jack spends months working on paintings, detailing his past experiences and memories of the landscape of Temora.

      'Coco' to his friends ...and he has plenty of them, is a warm, caring and very philosophical part of the diverse Katherine community. In this short video he shares his enjoyment and involment with Aboriginal people, and their love of art, and sharing culture. Coco is part owner of Coco's Backpackers, which can only be described as unique, and a complete home away from home. Under the shade of an age old Mango tree life rolls along at Coco's, and a cup of tea and a yarn is never far away. This video is not meant as a promotion for Coco's Backpackers, but more of a celebration of people from all walks of life sharing an experience, in the unique Katherine Region.

        Asei Sentani - West Papua barks are unique arts form. They start with a piece of bark that has been prised from the girth of Kambou tree. The tree chosen has to be relatively branchless and of a sufficient age. The bark is cured by placing it on the ground over a smoldering bank of coals with the edges extended. Rocks are placed on the corners and edges to hold the bark down. After it has dried and is mostly flat, the stringy side of the barks is scraped to make it smooth. When it is completely flat and smooth, the surface is painted. The media used for the paint come from natural sources and prepared as ground-up carbon (black), lime (white), clay (red).
