Surveying Gurru (Lake Hindmarsh)

This documentary was created as part of National Reconciliation Week 2016 by Barengi Gadjin Land Council and Cooper Heritage Management to highlight cultural heritage survey activities on the iconic Lake Hindmarsh in western Victoria.

Their findings help us understand how the area was traditionally used and the importance of Lake Hindmarsh in the past, present and future.

Celebrating Water and Culture on The Mooroobull Yaluk

Corangamite CMA worked with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners in developing a joint bid for additional water for the Moorabool River. This was to protect the environmental and Aboriginal values within the rivers on Wadawurrung Country.

The bid was successful and an additional 500 megalitres was released down the river when it was most needed. This allowed the Wadawaurrung community to come together, practice cultural values and share their knowledge.
