Books
The Kulkyne is a unique environment of semi-permanent lakes and woodlands formed the Murray River overflowing into the Mallee south of Mildura. Before colonial occupation, it was one of the most densely settled areas of Aboriginal Australia. Returning the Kulkyne tells the story of the colonial discovery and use of the Kulkyne tells the story of the colonial discovery and use of the Kulkyne as a squatting station, and later as a state forest. The land's Aboriginal owners resisted their dispossession, remained independent and made a place for themselves in the pastoral world, but colonial settlement devastated their communities and they were wrongly declared extinct.
