The Pearl Beach Aboriginal History Group’s Bungaree Weekend was held on November 23 and 24 at Pearl Beach Progress Hall.
The weekend was a celebration of the Peninsula’s rich aboriginal history, culture and heritage, according to history group member, Ms Peggy Todd,. “It was a joyous weekend with a multi-faceted program designed to include something for everyone,” said Ms Todd.
“The many people of all ages who attended or dropped in went away with a different view of Aboriginal culture. “Planning has already commenced for 2019,” said Ms Todd. An outline of the region’s history is given in a new edition of the publication The Wannangine of the Woy Woy Peninsula and Beyond, by the Bungaree Mob, available for purchase at Book Bazaar in Umina.
