About this event

The Ngurai-illum Wurrung

Presented by Ngurai-Illum Wurrung Elder, Uncle Vin Peters and Tony Ford

The Ngurai-illum Wurrung people’s country was the area east of the Campaspe River, extending across to beyond the Goulburn River. Their country was between that of the Yorta Yorta to the north and Taungurung to the south. However, their story is much less well known. The descendants are a small group who don’t live on country, and don’t have access to the resources that many well established Aboriginal corporations have. Part of the Kulin Nation, the Ngurai-illum Wurrung people have a fascinating history, about which there is still much to learn. Their country includes the Campaspe and Goulburn rivers, the Mt Camel range with its greenstone quarries, box ironbark forests south of Rushworth, wetlands (or former wetlands) and parts of the northern plains.
