Budj Bim makes way into Australia’s Tentative List World Heritage nominations

Published on : Friday, January 27, 2017

Australia’s Tentative ListBudj Bim cultural landscape will be added to Australia’s Tentative List World Heritage nominations.

 

The cultural landscape in Victoria’s south-west – one of Australia’s most culturally significant locations – was put forward for inclusion on the list by the Victoria Government.

 

It will now stay on the list for 12 months before being considered for World Heritage nomination, which would place it alongside the Royal Exhibition Building and the Kakadu National Park in terms of International protection and significance.

 

Budj Bim is home to one of Australia’s oldest and largest aquaculture systems and is evidence of a large, settled aboriginal community systematically farming and smoking eels for food and trade.

 

Gunditjmara people lived there in permanent settlements, dispelling the myth that Australia’s first people were all nomadic.

 

Budj Bim has also been identified by scholars as the world’s first engineering project, dating back at least 6,600 years, preceding the pyramids of Egypt and Stonehenge.
