Aboriginal boundary tree. Thegoa Lagoon, Murray River
This tree is located between Thegoa Lagoon and the Murray River, not far from the Thegoa Lagoon outlet. The Aboriginal tribes used to shape trees into a circle to mark the boundaries of their tribal areas.
Nagoora burr, Thegoa Lagoon

Thegoa Lagoon outlet, Thegoa Lagoon
This is the area where a proposed fish passage will eventually take the place of the current 'Log Bridge'. This will allow fish to enter and live in the lagoon freely when it's full.
