Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton is relieved the 32-year saga surrounding her daughter Azaria's death is over.
An emotional Chamberlain-Creighton addressed the media in Darwin this afternoon following the release of the coroner's finding that a dingo was responsible for the death of Azaria Chamberlain in 1980.
"We are relieved and delighted to come to the end of this saga," she said.
"No longer will Australia be able to say that dingoes are not dangerous and will only attack if provoked.
"We live in a beautiful country but it is dangerous and we'd ask all Australians to be aware of this and take appropriate precautions."
Coroner Elizabeth Morris earlier told a packed courtroom a dingo was to blame for the attack at Uluru, which resulted initially in Chamberlain-Creighton jailed for murder and her husband Michael given a suspended sentence for being an accessory after the fact.
Both were later exonerated after a royal commission in 1987.
Michael Chamberlain, Azaria's father, thanked the "courageous and independent coroner" for her finding, saying she was "speaking for the dead".
"This has been a terrifying battle," he told reporters.
"Bitter at times, but now some healing and a chance to put our daughter's spirit to rest."
He said justice can be achieved no matter how hard it seemed.
"I'm here to tell you, you can get justice even when you think all is lost," he said.
Chamberlain recalled being told by a senior judicial officer after the previous inquest that he would never get justice in the Northern Territory.
''Well, the truth is out,'' he said.
He thanked the media for its ''reporting based on facts'' and the family's supporters throughout the ordeal.
''If you know you are right, never give up on getting it right when a serious issue could affect the life and livelihood of others.''
Chamberlain said he was now going to pick up Azaria's death certificate.
''I cannot express strongly enough how important it is to pursue a just cause, even when it seems to be a mission impossible,'' he said.
The inquest was the fourth into the death of Azaria since the nine-week-old child disappeared on a camping trip.
The decision will mean that Azaria's death certificate will be changed.
In 1988, the Northern Territory Court of Criminal Appeal overturned all convictions against the Chamberlains but a coronial inquest in 1995 delivered an open verdict.
In the final moments of handing down her finding, an emotional Morris apologised to the Chamberlain family.
Morris said she was satisfied the evidence was "adequate, clear, cogent and exact and excluded all other reasons possible".
She told the court: "(Azaria) died at Uluru on 17th August 1980 as a result of being attacked and taken by a dingo."
She told them an amended death certificate was available immediately to them.
Chamberlain-Creighton returned to Darwin yesterday, on what would have been the 32nd birthday of Azaria, so she could be in court for the decision.
Before the finding was handed down, Tipple said the coroner had been presented with fresh evidence detailing 11 serious dingo attacks that had occurred since the last inquest into Azaria's death.
But Tipple rejected the suggestion the Chamberlains wanted to put to rest any doubts about their innocence.
"I don't really think that anybody that is right thinking or really studied the evidence could possibly entertain that Lindy or Michael are involved," he told ABC Radio today.
"There have been enough judicial decisions about that. This is really just the final public record that needs to be corrected."
Tipple said from his experience all parents who had lost children in tragic circumstances shared a common view.
"They really want to make sure this doesn't happen to another family and to another parent," he said.
"It's not really just a cause or a journey for themselves."
THE CORONER'S DECISION
The name of the deceased was Azaria Chantel Loren Chamberlain, born in Mount Isa, Queensland on 11 June 1980.
She was the daughter of Michael Leigh Chamberlain and Alice Lynne Chamberlain.
Azaria Chamberlain died at Uluru, then known as Ayers Rock, on 17 August 1980.
The cause of her death was as the result of being attacked and taken by a dingo.''
It is obvious, not just from these findings, but from other injuries and deaths since, dingoes can and do cause harm to humans. The reason for this behaviour, either on the 17 August 1980 or since is beyond the scope of this inquest.
Given the length of time since the death of Azaria, I do not intend to make any recommendations in relation to public safety and the control or management of dingoes in areas frequented by members of the public.
It is also not appropriate to make any comment on animal management practices at the time in and around the Uluru area.
Various wildlife and park management authorities around Australia are responsible for accommodating and balancing the needs of visitors and animals, including native wildlife.
It is appropriate that they take measures to manage the now identified risks.
