Back to Porcupine Flat is a composition about some miners heading back to Porcupine Flat just outside of Maldon to continue digging for gold. The diggers had a tough time on the goldfields and despite the possible reward of finding gold there were also many difficulties faced by the miners.
Back to Porcupine Flat is a tribute to the miners who kept going back to work their claims as hard as life on the goldfields was.
