"Police were told the men then smashed a window, before fleeing on foot."

Mr Gibson, who said his wife was home at the time but his children were at his parents' house, said he had "received death threats before from far right but not for a while".

"My family home was attacked by Nazis last night," the Solidarity socialist group member said, on Twitter.

"Three skin heads with Eureka flag shirts came to the door, shouting my name, demanding I come out.

"When I didn't they attempted to force entry, kicked hard on the door, ripped the security grill off this window and smashed it in.

"It was terrifying. Thankfully my kids were at my parents (sic) place."

Mr Gibson said it took half an hour for police to arrive but "the local community rallied".

Later on Sunday, the Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research senior researcher said he had received a lot of support since the incident.

Police said a crime scene had been established and investigations were continuing
