Students and staff from Tathra Public School attend burial ceremony

Students and staff attended a traditional burial ceremony held in Tathra to commemorate the burial of two Aboriginal people.

In 1968, the bodies were discovered when excavation took place on the present site of the Tathra Memorial Gardens area. The bodies discovered were estimated by Sydney University to be 800 years or more old. The burial ceremony was attended by many Tathra community members and is another of the many sacred sites located in the Tathra region.
