Borrong gook in Wadawurrung language means ‘place of Brown
Drysdale was a place of gathering, a place of plenty, a
place of resting – with freshwater, saltwater and many other places that
provided food, medicine, fibres and other resources.
Lake Lorne was where the Wadawurrung people, Traditional Owners
of this land, took shelter and sourced their food and medicine. Bark from the stringybark
trees was used to make capsules for babies. Today, there are still a variety of
plants and grass.
Follow the Lake Lorne Mindfulness Walk around Lake Lorne and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.
This walk was developed in conjunction with VCAL students from Saint Ignatius
College in 2017.
