No full-blood Aborigine children were taken away.
But, on the other hand, whole families, including children were and re-located to a central area with other various tribes.
I recall chatting with a 90 yo lady about 25 years ago. She told me how all the blacks camped around her house, what pleasant people they were, and one day a big truck pulled up and loaded them all into the back. They were all taken to a place later called Cherborg. It is still there and we get a lot of fine sportsmen from there.
To-day there are no native people in the Blackall Mountains, inland of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. And this was their favourite area for their four yearly Bunya pine nut get-together.
But yet...another story..My friends Ian and Margaret onced managed Victoria River Downs - a cattle property once half the size of Tasmania - bigger than some European nations. They are the kindest people.
One day Margaret was bought a tiny baby picaninny that had been left on an ant heap to die. He was a half-caste. I can understand the natives wanting to keep their blood-line pure.
Margaret cleaned the baby up, nursed it back to health, and eventually gave him back to his mother. Soon after the baby was again rescued back from an ant heap and this time Margaret kept it.
Ian and Margaret eventually moved to a coastal town. One day that little baby knocked on her door with his own wife and baby. They are doing fine.
