Culture & history

 

Aboriginal heritage
The area's landscapes are part of the identity, spirituality, connection and resource base for local Aboriginal people including the Nganduwal, Galibal, Gidhabul and Widjabal Aboriginal peoples. They contain a complex network of mythological and significant sites that are closely interrelated and bound together by their 'Dreaming.' Despite being dispossessed during the early European settlement of the region, the local Aboriginal peoples maintain a diversity of living cultures and a unique and deep felt attachment to these lands.

 

The land and waterways, and the plants and animals that live in them, feature in all facets of Aboriginal culture – including recreational, ceremonial, spiritual and as a main source of food and medicine. They are associated with dreaming stories and cultural learning that is still passed on today. We work with local Aboriginal communities to protect this rich heritage. To find out more about Aboriginal heritage in the park, you can get in touch with the local Aboriginal community. Contact the park office for more details.
