Feb 10, 2020


20-year-old Bradley Streeter has been described as a “cheeky” son with “a heart of gold” after falling 30 metres to his death at the Cave Gardens sinkhole in Mt Gambier.

The Advertiser reports that police have told Mr Streeter’s family he died while performing a handstand on a railing around the sinkhole.

According to the paper:

His mother Marianne told The Advertiser her “cheeky” son from Lewiston, north of Adelaide, was loved by family and friends.

“I loved him. He was my heart, my mind, my soul,” she told The Advertiser. “He was my sword and my shield.”

Liz Anne a family friend of 37 years who spoke to The Advertiser on behalf of the family, said Bradley was an incredibly social young man who was “full of life”.

“He was such a loud personality that I think even if people didn’t know him very well, he imprinted on them extremely well,” Ms Anne said.
