Did you know...?
Taungurung people know the Goulburn River as Waring, and have a special connection to it and its tributaries.
The waters of Waring have a special connection
with Taungurung, including its tributaries such as the Broken River, Hughes Creek, Seven Creeks, Yea River, Acheron River, King Parrot Creek, Rubicon River, Jamieson River, and the Howqua and Delatite rivers. Taungurung’s involvement is crucial to incorporate their traditional ecological knowledge into water management in the region.
Horseshoe Lagoon is a culturally significant site for Taungurung women. Water for the environment was delivered to the site, outside Seymour, for the first time in July 2019. Celebrating the delivery Taungurung water knowledge group Baan Ganalina (Guardians
of Water), Goulburn Broken CMA, local landholders and partners came together to mark the significant occasion. Horseshoe Lagoon is one of the many Goulburn River associated wetlands which are highly significant for Taungurung.
