At midday, November 12 2016, as part of the official ceremony commemorating Tumbulgum’s 150th Anniversary, six Councilors came together in Bluey Hill Park to unveil the monument recognising the site of the original settlement in the Tweed Valley.
The park is now a delightful spot at the junction of the Tweed and Rous Rivers, following an initial clean-up and two community planting sessions under the supervision of Matthew Bloor, Project Officer Waterways, Tweed Council.
The restoration of the riverbank vegetation is a legacy we can leave the coming generations.
We are aware that a Kayak trail is under consideration for the Rous River.
It would be great if, in the future, a walking trail providing information about the original vegetation was part of the experience offered to those who come ashore at Bluey Hill Park.
