Up the Carob Tree is a novel firmly based in Western Australia. Related through the eyes of a growing child, it tells the story of a family living on the outskirts of 'an ordinary little country town' that remains nameless but could be anywhere the reader wishes to place it: anywhere with 'majestic' grain silos and a milk bar called the Rotunda with a juke box that works 'most of the time.' In due course there's a Drive –In and a new fangled establishment called a 'motel.' The four neighbouring blocks on East Quarry Road where the family lives are taken up by an assortment of people, all from 'somewhere else' with their different and colourful, sometimes mysterious backgrounds and circumstances that are of endless interest to a curious child.

Wanjina Beings – among the most distinctive of all the Aboriginal Ancestral Beings depicted in Australian rock art – have been a topic of conjecture among Western scholars since their discovery by the explorer George Grey in the northwest Kimberley Region of Australia, in 1838. Their origins have at various times been ascribed to travellers from other continents and even extraterrestrial sources.
