Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape
More than 30 000 years ago the ground in this area rumbled and rolled as Aboriginal people nearby witnessed Budj Bim, an important creation being from the Dreamtime reveal himself in the landscape. The volcano that today we call Mount Eccles, is his forehead and the scoria are his teeth.
Budj Bim is the source of the Tyrendarra lava flow, which extends from Mount Eccles over 50km to the west and south and which is central to the history of these local Aboriginal people, known as the Gunditjmara.
