If it wasn't for the footprints we wouldn't know about 'before' Australia's history we have today would not make sense anymore. If it wasn't for the footsteps which created the path we share our survival in this landscape would lead us to nowhere. If it wasn't for the footpaths still here from long ago our heritage in writing would still reflect our woes. If it wasn't for the footprints which were made into the sand the footprints of first Australians; our Aboriginal clans. If it wasn't for their footsteps which carved the land and lore Australians could not know a history from this land that was 'before'.
