Nature Walk - Kinglake National Park

  • Kinglake National Park Masons Falls Picnic Area, Masons Falls Rd Kinglake West (map)

Come along on a pleasant hike with a Ranger through the regenerating bush that clearly shows the impact of the Kinglake fires. Masons Falls are quite spectacular. Approx 2km, easy walking. 10:00am - 11:30am

The area now known as Kinglake National Park is located
within the traditional land of the Wurundjeri people to the
south and the Taungurung people to the north.
For many thousands of years Wurundjeri and Taungurung
people inhabited this area and made use of the abundance of
seasonally available plants and animals, and to carry out
important cultural duties. Plants and animals served many
purposes including temporary shelter, transport, food,
medicine, clothing, hunting implements and many other
important cultural items.
Seasonal movement within their traditional lands was
determined by the availability of food and weather
conditions. Present day Wurundjeri and Taungurung people
still have a very strong connection with this area. Many
Aboriginal sites were uncovered by the fires in 2009 including
scatters and hand tools. These sites are being surveyed and
recorded so that they can be protected forever
