They then walked hundreds of kilometres with her parents from the Tanami Desert to find work at Gordon Downs Station near Ringer Soak, 170 Kilometres from Halls Creek.

Their new home was a hard, dry, featureless place on the Great Antrim Plateau near the Northern Territory border, and they worked as virtual slaves - Rosie and her mother cooking and cleaning, her father on the cattle station. They lived with other station workers from the local Djaru community at Kundat Djaru (Ringer Soak), an area pitted with waterholes, picking bush onion and eating goanna, living a largely traditional life. But when the station closed in the 80s, many of the people moved to Halls Creek. Rosie stayed at Ringer Soak and still lives there today. Rosie proudly paints the dreaming stories that mother and father had told her.
