- GUNAIKURNAI Culture
There is a high concentration of GUNAIKURNAI sites in the Gippsland area including artefact scatters, shell middens, scarred trees, massacre sites and axe grinding grooves. The need to protect sites often means that they cannot be openly publicised.
IT IS AN OFFENCE UNDER THE HERITAGE ACT (2006) TO TAMPER WITH OR REMOVE ANYTHING FROM AN ABORIGINAL SITE.
Please treat all sites along the trail with respect and care to ensure they are preserved for future generations.
Development of the Bataluk Cultural trail is a joint initiative of the Far East Gippsland Aboriginal Corporation, Gippsland and East Gippsland Aboriginal Co-operative, Lake Tyers Aboriginal Trust, Moogji Aboriginal Council, Ramahyuck Aboriginal Corporation, East Gippsland Shire Council and Wellington Shire Council.
