The Prime Minister, accompanied by a large security entourage, visited Central NSW University today, and briefly spoke with emergency services workers, police and forensic scientists working at the scene.
Earlier, the Prime Minister visited the Avondale Primary School, and reportedly spoke at length with two pupils whose mother had been killed in the bombing.
Photographers were barred from the scene.
Political Commentators have been split on the PM's move, some describing it merely as a "waste of a brilliant Photo-Op", others as "a sickening political stunt and blatant exploitation of victims and orphans".
