Statue of Harry Nanya and family commemorates one of the last free roaming aboriginals.

Harry Nanya was one of the last aborigines in New South Wales to live by traditional hunting techniques. About 1860 Nanya left his camp and vanished into waterless country with two women and a steel axe. He reappeared more than thirty years later, with 27 children.
