The People of Gariwerd draws on a new interpretation of the Grampian region’s archaeology by La Trobe University and Aboriginal Affairs Victoria in collaboration with Gariwerd’s Aboriginal communities.  It tells how Aboriginal people have maintained an intense and unbroken relationship with the peaks and plains of Gariwerd since the last Ice Age to the present day. It recounts how, in the eons prior to European settlement, they lived together, managed the land, and used the landscape as a map telling them how to live.  With over 120 rock art sites catalogued, the Gariwerd-Grampians ranges have a richer and more diverse record of Aboriginal occupation than any other place in southeastern Australia.
