Travel down to the vast western region of Victoria populated by the Gunditjmara people and discover a treasure trove of ancient Indigenous stories and customs.
Learning the ways
Make your way to Tower Hill, a nature reserve nestled inside an extinct volcano near Warrnambool and a site of significance for the Gunditjmara people. Take a walk with an Aboriginal guide to see native wildlife up close, get a glimpse into traditional ways of life, and learn about bush foods and medicines.
Budj Bim Cultural Landscape
Continue along the Great Ocean Road to the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape at Lake Condah. Already claiming National Heritage status, this site has recently been nominated to Australia's World Heritage Tentative List due to evidence of one of the world's oldest and largest aquaculture systems and a permanent Aboriginal settlement, exploding the myth that all Indigenous people of Australia were nomadic.
Go on a tour with a local aboriginal guide and see the remains of stone houses used by the original inhabitants of the area along with the remnants of a large and complex eel trap system.
