Azaria and her parents Lindy and Michael Chamberlain, were on holiday near Uluru in the Australian Northern Territory. This is where the impressive sandstone formation called Ayers Rock is located, which is sacred to Australia’s aboriginal people and is one of the most impressive rock formations in the world.
Australia is one of the most popular destinations for tourists who flock to see the wonders of the great barrier reef, the Sydney opera house and the amazing Whitsundays, to name just a few. However, it is also common knowledge that this country contains a variety of poisonous and aggressive creatures who are responsible for thousands of deaths annually.
When Azaria Chamberlain passed away on August 17, 1980, her death rocked the nation. The sad fact was that Chamberlain was only born on July 11, 1980, so she was just two-months-old at the time of her death. Perhaps even more tragic of all is the years of pain and uncertainty which followed her death.
