Where are we?

The Strathbogie Ranges are situated in North Eastern Victoria, Australia, surrounded by the townships of Benalla to the north-east, Seymour to the south-west and Yea and Merton to the south. Whilst the Ranges themselves are defined by two large and connected, elevated granitic landscapes, the Eastern and Western Strathbogie Ranges, the Strathbogie Ranges CMN area extends beyond the higher topography, to include all areas within the major Highways that surround the Ranges (Hume Fwy, Goulburn Valley Hwy, Maroondah Hwy, Midland Hwy). Notwithstanding this convenient boundary, any groups or individuals interested in the natural history and ecology of the region are welcome to join in.

  1. Hello – found the site looking for information on Aboriginal history of the area. Thanks – it’s great!
    I would like to get updates, but can’t see where to click on “Follow This Blog” at right? If I just tick below will that do it?

    Found your site via Ian lunt. Wow, you have been busy!!!
    I am chasing up Rock Art Sites and related sites in the Nth East. Trying to re-educate myself on First Nations events.
    Also been chasing up site of wells and axe grooves around Beechworth.
    Wondering if you have any info on the “Fake Hands Art Site”. Located about 19km due north of Bonnie Doon. It is marked on the Rooftop Map for the area.

  3. I am just wondering if there is a local environmental/conservation expert who could lead a bush walk at a church camp on sat 5th or sun 6th Jan around 4.30pm with a focus on learning about the local environment, native ecosystems, weeds and other threatening processes and perhaps some indigenous land use perspectives

  4. Love the Goanna shots, and the news that their numbers are increasing.
    Good seasons upon good seasons have done that with the Duck populations in the Murray Darling Basin, so maybe something is happening along those lines with your Goannas.
    Best wishes for the Summer Season.
