Abstract:

For thousands of years before Europeans settled on the land now occupied by the western region of Melbourne, it was the estate of a number of Koorie clans. Koories lived a lifestyle which was closely connected to the environment. Any study of this way of life therefore has to take account of what the countryside was like before Europeans arrived, and the changes which have occurred since then. What we know about the life of the Koories before Europeans came, and about how the countryside has changed through time, has been learned by studying a variety of sources of information. These sources include historical descriptions and accounts, official records, geological evidence, and archaeological investigation. This book gives a general account of what is known as a result of these studies, as it applies to the western region of Melbourne.
