My constituency question is for the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs.
Victorian Aboriginal culture in the south-west region of Victoria has a strong history and connection with the land. The Gunditjmara people and the Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owner Aboriginal Corporation, which is the registered Aboriginal party, have been protecting and managing the land for many thousands of years.
The Premier and I recently had the opportunity and were honoured to walk the land of Lake Condah to see the Aboriginal sacred site Budj Bim.
Can the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs inform my constituents and the house of her interactions with the Gunditjmara people and how this government has nominated Budj Bim as the no. 1 priority in getting it world heritage listing, and in doing so, could she outline the process of getting this sacred site recognised on the world stage along with 19 other Australian World Heritage listed sites?
