Well I have one day in the windy yet gorgeous Wilsons Promontory in South Gippsland.

Gorgeous beach & wonderful bushland National Park.

We (11 of us) had the privillage of looking for artefacts left from the Gunai/Kurnai Aboriginal people.
We found core samples, loads of shells (middens) and camp fires.

I found a few pieces of quartz but the best was the granite cores. It was fantastic.

The best bit is that you (the general public) are not to walk off track, so everything we found was safely away from the public for the future Aboriginal groups to find.

I'll post photos of some of the stuff we found & of the beautiful landscape.
