What is the Upper Wimmera Catchment?
Our region stretches from the headwaters of Barringgi Gadyin (the Wimmera River) in Mt Cole, to the Mt William Creek/Wimmera River junction at the northern end of Gariwerd (Grampians Ranges). Traditional owner groups from the region include the Jardwadjali, Djab Warrung, Djadja Wurrung, Wotjobaluk and Wadawurrung People. These groups have had a strong cultural connection to their country for at least 22,000 years.
Project Platypus acknowledges and pays respect to the past and present Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
