Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre and Ancient Structures

Immerse yourself in a 2-hour guided exploration of Tae Rak (Lake Condah), a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is celebrated exclusively for its Aboriginal cultural importance. The journey begins at the Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre & Café, where you will encounter kooyang, or eels, an invaluable resource for the Gunditjmara people. Understand the remarkable life cycle of these long-distance migrators. As you stroll down the picturesque boardwalk, discover Gunditjmara stone aquaculture sites and dams, which date back over 6600 years, revealing Gunditjmara's sophisticated understanding of sustainable farming and water management.

Budj Bim Cultural Landscape & Ingenious Gunditjmara Techniques

Continue your journey along the lake's edge, unveiling the remnants of kooyang traps, primordial Aboriginal stone dwellings, and remnants of lava flows. These physical testaments to a harmonious coexistence of human creativity and nature are part of Budj Bim Cultural Landscape, a site renowned for one of the world's oldest and most comprehensive aquaculture systems. Witness the ingenious methods the Gunditjmara employed, using the volcanic terrain to create an elaborate network of channels, weirs, and dams for the capture, storage, and harvest of Kooyang. This masterpiece of human innovation surpasses even the Pyramids or Stonehenge in age, standing as an enduring testament to human resourcefulness.
