The Water Runners have just released their latest single "Murrumbidgee". It tells the tale of brave Wiradjuri men, Yarri and Jacky Jacky, who, with others, saved dozens of people in the great flood of Gundagai in 1852. The word 'Murrumbidgee' is taken from its Wiradjuri name 'Marrambidya', meaning 'big water'. Despite being hailed as heroes, Yarri and Jacky Jacky, along with their families, were kept on the margins of society and the story of these brave men has not been given the wide recognition it so deserves.
