Join us for a Tae Rak tour
Come for a tour on Gunditjmara Country with Glenelg Hopkins CMA and Budj Bim Cultural Landscape Tours!
Did you know?
The Budj Bim World Heritage cultural landscape is a volcanic plain that encompasses the area from Budj Bim (Mt Eccles) to the sea. The basalt lava flow created a series of wetlands and rivers including Tae Rak (Lake Condah), Killara (Darlot Creek), and Palawarra (Fitzroy River) and its estuary.
As part of the Budj Bim Connections Flagship Waterway project, Glenelg Hopkins CMA is offering subsidised tours of Tae Rak (Lake Condah) to raise awareness and showcase the importance of this cultural landscape to the community.
Subsidised tours will cost $20/head (RRP $85) and will take place throughout November (tour dates: November 3, 5, 11, 19, 24 & 26).
To participate in the tours, participants simply need to complete a short survey before and after they attend the tour to gauge participants’ understanding and awareness of the cultural landscape.
To access a subsidised tour place, simply complete the survey to obtain the discount tour code.
