“The most extensive, coherent and best-surviving goldrush landscape, anywhere…”

– Draft Statement of Outstanding Universal Value for Australia's Victorian Goldfields

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners whose Country includes the Victorian Goldfields Region: the Barengi Gadjin (the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagulk peoples), Dja Dja Wurrung, Eastern Maar, Gunaikurnai, Taungurung, Wadawurrung, Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Yorta Yorta peoples.

We pay our respects to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
