About

This tour takes visitors through the history of the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape from creation to farming. Visit Kurtonitj IPA, Budj Bim National Park, Lake Gorrie and Tae Rak, showcasing the living Indigenous culture and landscape through Gunditjmara eyes.

Located at the heart of the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape, Kurtonitj (meaning ‘crossing place’) is sacred to the Gunditjmara people with enormous cultural, archaeological and environmental significance. The site has historical stone kooyang (eel) traps and stone channels, stone house sites and eel smoking trees, a stone art installation, as well as an area of lava flow featuring two weirs and a dam associated with trapping and holding kooyang (eel).

Move on to Lake Gorrie for morning tea. The site is an example of a drystone wall sheep wash, built by Gunditjmara people and used by early pastoralists. You could also see large numbers of Karrayn (grey kangaroo) living here. Constructed in the mid 1800’s, the drystone walls demonstrate a high level of craftsmanship and skill in their construction and have been deemed of archaeological significance by the State of Victoria.

Enjoy lunch at the Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre followed by a two hour guided walk of Tae Rak (Lake Condah).
