A cast of thousands, 30 years and christ knows how many tax payer dollars later....
The parents of Azaria Chamberlain say they are "relieved and delighted" to finally have closure after a Northern Territory coroner delivered a finding their baby daughter was killed by a dingo.
Speaking outside a Darwin court Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton thanked the people who had supported the family since their nine-week-old daughter's death in 1980.
"Obviously we're relieved and delighted to come to the end of this saga," Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton said outside the court.
"No longer will Australia be able to say that dingoes are not dangerous and do not attack unless provoked.
"We live in a beautiful country but it is dangerous."
Azaria's father Michael said the legal ordeal had been "terrifying" and "bitter at times".
"This battle to get to the legal truth has taken too long," he said.
