Another great Twilight Talk

Gib Wettenhall

will talk about the amazing unknown Indigenous history of the Gunditjmara’s eel aquaculture systems and associated stone house settlements at Lake Condah in south west Victoria – probably the oldest fishtrap and associated village system in the world by several thousand years.

He will also tell us about the Eumeralla War the people of Lake Condah fought over a 6 year period in the 1840s to stop dispossession by squatters including the author Rolf Boldrewood of Robbery Under Arms fame.
