Lost Tribes of the Hawkesbury monument

A stone obelisk monument to the “Lost Tribes of the Hawkesbury” is raised at the site of the old Sackville Reserve in the Public Recreation Reserve off Holes Drive, Sackville. The unveiling ceremony is organised by the Historical Society of NSW. A large crowd is in attendance. This includes Mr Sid W Ridgeway (son of the late King of Karua, Port Stephens) and his wife Corra. The monument is soon forgotten after blackberries surround it.(Nichols p6)
