Kooris care for plateau

THE rich Aboriginal cultural heritage of the Dorrigo Plateau will be the focus of a full day National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Discovery activity called 'Killungoondie Aboriginal Heritage Walk' in the remote parts of Dorrigo National Park on Saturday.

NPWS Discovery co-ordinator Andrew Turbill said the Dorrigo Plateau is part of the traditional territory of the Gumbayngirr people, who visited seasonally for hunting and gathering.

“Local NPWS Aboriginal Discovery Ranger Mark Flanders will lead the tour, when you can learn more about the maintenance of the open grassland on Killungoondie Plain by the visiting Gambalamam clan through burning, for several thousands of years.

The cost of $10 per person includes interpretation by NPWS Discovery rangers and handouts.

Bookings are essential for this tour.

For further information and bookings phone the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre on 6657 2309.
