Front Inscription

Shire of Eurobodalla

This anchor, raised from the Tomaga River where it had served as an aid to navigation during the early part of this century, was erected by the Eurobodalla Shire Council with the help of public subscription to commemorate the Bi-centenary of Captain Cook`s historic voyage of discovery along the N.S.W. coastline, passing Tomhahgan (the Aboriginal name for the river) on this day 200 years ago.

It also recalls the significant part played by the maritime services in the development of this region in the early days of settlement.

A. E. Fenning, Shire President,
