National Heritage

Sacred to the Gunditjmara people, the Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape at Lake Condah in Victoria's south-west is home to the remains of potentially one of Australia's largest aquaculture systems. Dating back thousands of years, the area shows evidence of a large, settled Aboriginal community systematically farming and smoking eels for food and trade.

You can visit on a guided or self-guided tour of the Lake Condah area, and visitors can see eel and fish traps, and the only remaining permanent houses built by an Indigenous community in Australia.

The Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape was included in the National Heritage List on 30 March 2007.

We are currently applying for World Heritage Listing.
