Indigenous Cultural Heritage in the Boyne Valley, Central Queensland

08th December 2001

yowyehetal_posterUntil the raising of the Awoonga Dam near Gladstone in Central Queensland, virtually nothing was known about Indigenous occupation of the Boyne Valley. The Awoonga Dam Cultural Heritage Project Stage 2 is investigating a number of sites in collaboration with members of the Gooreng Gooreng, Gurang and Bailai Native Title claimants, in order to address questions raised by the Traditional Owners, including dating, trade links, and unique aspects of life in the Boyne Valley. Sites recorded so far include artefact types such as backed blades, eloueras, axes and tula-like retouched flakes.
