Wiradjuri Land, Then and Now

Griffith resides on Wiradjuri country. In this area there were many family groups who lived on the land and around the rivers nearby. To learn more about local Wiradjuri culture, the students visited Aunt Gloria Goolagong to learn about her life and knowledge of Wiradjuri history. They compared her stories to how Griffith looks today – a landscape filled with houses and farms.

We would like to thank Gloria for sharing information about Wiradjuri history and culture. We would also like to thank Griffith City council for providing us with some of the images for our book. Thanks to Mrs. Adams for her help with creating this book.
