Matthew Leveson’s memorial site in Sydney’s Royal Nation Park has been vandalised on the eve of his funeral.

Devastated parents Mark and Faye Leveson visited the site Thursday night to lay fresh flowers beside his memorial tree, three metres from where his remains were found in May 2017, a decade after he disappeared.

They found the site dismantled, with plaques, paper tributes and flowers stripped off the tree, leaving it absolutely bare.

Mark tells Ben Fordham he and Faye were “dumbfounded”.

“We went down there last week… and things were quite normal,” he says.

“It’s just been cleaned up and taken away.

“We are dumbfounded, mystified.”

Today the family paid tribute to Matthew’s life at his funeral, where guests wore his favourite colour purple in celebration of his life.

“It was a beautiful funeral, everybody was in bright colours, we have bright happy music,” says Faye.

“We wanted this to be a celebration.”
