Today Marks One Year Since The Dreamworld Tragedy

Four victims being remembered

Today Marks One Year Since The Dreamworld Tragedy ABC

A private ceremony will be held for Dreamworld staff to mark one year since the deaths of four people.

Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett, Roozi Araghi and Cindy Low lost their lives in front of terrified park-goers on October 25, 2016, when the attraction they were enjoying, the Thunder River Rapids Ride, malfunctioned just moments before they were due to exit the ride.

A public memorial will not be held, but the theme park's workers and management will gather for a reflection ceremony and Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony.

"First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts remain with the families and all those affected by the tragedy during this difficult period," Dreamworld CEO Craig Davidson said in a statement.

"The families remain our immediate consideration, this is a difficult time for all concerned. Our hearts and thoughts remain with all those affected by the tragedy."

Last week, Queensland police recommended no criminal charges be laid over the tragedy, but a final decision remains with the coroner. A Workplace Health and Safety QLD report has been completed but not publicly released, but an inquest is yet to be held.

The theme park is still discussing whether to erect a permanent memorial for the victims.
