Sandon River - Plover Island

Located at the mouth of the Sandon River, Plover Island is a significant site connected to the Yaegl and Gumbaingirr Aboriginal peoples. The island contains a small quarry where stone axes and knives were mined and fashioned.
Plover Island connects to the mainland at low-tide across a spit of sand and shingle.

  2. 'A spit of sand and shingle' - I would move to the country just to be able to post a story using that phrase. Can't ever see me using it in a Sydney based story.
