Additional Notes In August 1962, Professor F.W. Robinson attended the opening of a bora ring at Burleigh Heads. The ceremonial ring had been reclaimed by work of the local Lions Club, who erected a fence adorned with giant boomerangs around the ring. Thirty-five Aborigines from the Cherbourg settlement performed five corroborees before a large audience on presentation day. (Information from Bora rings on Gold Coast and Tweed preserved for all time. (1962). Dawn, 11 (8); Tweed heads remembers Margaret Kay. (1968). Dawn, 17 (11).)
