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

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

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

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
