Bungaree weekend was ‘joyous’

Bungaree weekend activities were popular

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.
