Thanks to the mammoth wet season we've had, a permanent memorial and walk has been postponed. 

The team at K9 River Retreat making the decision to move 'Toyah's Walk' to June 30th instead instead of this weekend.  

It's been an agonising decision for Owner Petra Lovey but one that was necessary. 

"We had people bringing trailers including the Mareeba Lions Club which meant they can't get in at the moment because of the mud, please the possibility of people falling over, it's just too dangerous." She said. 

Toyah Cordingley worked at the retreat for 9 months, leaving a mark on hundreds of people, as she always did across the Far North community. 

Police say they're still investigating her murder, now 6 months ago, when she went to Wangetti Beach to walk her dog and never returned home. 

The event is set to be the official opening of a permanent memorial for the 24-year-old with businesses donating their time and money to make it possible.
