"SUCH a tragedy".

Three words, written in blue on a boxed set of flowers, that say so much.

More tributes, including cards and a teddy bear, have been left beside the driveway at the front of the Hunt family's property "Watch Hill", as the close-knit communities of Lockhart and Boree Creek continue to come to terms with the horror they've had to endure this week.

The bodies of 41-year-old Kim Hunt and her three children - Fletcher, 10, Mia, 8, and Phoebe, 6 - were found at their home by a member of the public on Tuesday afternoon.

The body of a man - believed to be that of husband and father Geoff Hunt - was recovered from a dam by police divers the following day.

Post mortems are being conducted to determine cause of death, but police say all sustained gunshot wounds.

A gun was also found in the dam.

Given the family's involvement with the Lockhart Demons Football and Netball Club, a presentation day scheduled for tomorrow has been put on hold.

"Due to the tragic events of this week, the junior football and netball presentation night has been postponed until a further date," the club posted on Twitter yesterday.
