The Murrumbidgee CMA is committed to achieving a greater understanding and awareness of Aboriginal cultural heritage in the Murrumbidgee catchment. The Murrumbidgee CMA is working in partnership with Aboriginal people and communities across the Murrumbidgee catchment to achieve positive outcomes in Natural Resource Management and to create a greater understanding, awareness and knowledge of Aboriginal cultural heritage values in the landscape.
This book is a contemporary guide to the identification
of plants within the Murrumbidgee catchment and their significance and cultural use for the Wiradjuri people. The Wiradjuri Cultural Landscape Mapping Project, of which this publication is a product, consulted widely with local Aboriginal communities across the Murrumbidgee catchment. The consultation process involved the collection of information on the Aboriginal cultural heritage uses of native vegetation.
