The self-guided family experience snakes along a 2.4 kilometre walking track by the beautiful Ovens (Torryong) River and is dotted with sculptures, interpretive signage and storyboards, interactive videos of Pangerang Dreamtime stories, medicinal plants and bush tucker. The word ‘Bullawah’ is a Pangerang word meaning ‘two over the river’ and signifies the suspension bridges along the path. The trail begins in the heart of town at Marmungun Rock, in Apex Park, on Bickerton Street, which honours local Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders in the community. It then meanders northeast with 15 major points along the way, finishing at College Street. The project was recognised for advancing reconciliation in Victoria with a state-wide award, the Community HART (Helping Achieve Reconciliation Together) Award, in June 2017. Sculptures and storyboards along the Bullawah Culture Trail tell Dreamtime stories including that of Mundgee, the Murray cod.
