Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 9 Hansard (18 August) . . Page.. 2968..


Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The Member's assertions are wrong. $76,000 was allocated from the 2004-05 Budget initiative for the Murrumbidgee Heritage Trail to prepare an interpretation plan for sites of particular heritage significance and interest between Angle Crossing and Uriarra Crossing. It will also cover the cost of design, manufacture and installation of interpretive signage. One of these sites is the grave of Onyong, a prominent Aboriginal of the region in the early 1800s.

(2) There is no initiative in the Budget papers related specifically to Onyong's grave.

(3) The interpretive signage for Onyong's grave is being developed as part of the Murrumbidgee Heritage Trail interpretation plan. Relevant Aboriginal groups are currently being consulted on draft material.
