After experiencing a Welcome to Country, touring the GLaWAC Cultural Centre, learning about water rights and enjoying lunch prepared by the Bush Cafe, continue to immerse yourself in the opening events for Waterfront Gippsland with a guided Walk on Country.
Led by Traditional Owners, walk to Legend Rock – an important part of Gunaikurnai mythology that lies in shallow water by the shore of Bancroft Bay, Metung. The rock forms part of the Bataluk Cultural Trail, which follows traditional routes weaving through sites of Aboriginal significance and spanning an incredibly rich history from Dreamtime to today.
