History/Origin Named after Roy Bigfoot BurrBurr. He was born south of the Daly in the 1920s and lived most of his life on Anson Bay in the Channel Point area. He was well known to many of the people who had holiday homes at the Channel Point community. Roy was one of the last exponents of off-shore sailing in dug-out canoes and although other options were available he brought up his family and lived all of his life, traditionally, on the beach at Balgal. He was buried on the land trust side of the Wagait Reserve in the late 1980s.
