Boorong Country I RLF6486

Lake Tyrrell in northwestern Victoria is the site of what is said to be the oldest known evidence of human habitation of Victoria and Tasmania. Lake Tyrrell has revealed humans were in the vicinity of the Lake 44000 years BCE, with evidence of large earthen ovens containing stone artefacts and a range of charred bones and shells. The area is part of the land of the Boorong clan of the Wergaia Language Group. The Boorong were famous astronomers, with their dreaming stories told in the skies reflected on Lake Tyrrell.
