Grants Picnic Grounds Connections from Traditional Owners, Bullen Bullen Story, to todays picnics in the Sherbrooke National Park

A week-long event celebrating the connections in the Sherbrooke Forrest. From Traditional Owners Dreaming Story of Bullen Bullen, Indigenous Women’s workshop, Tom Tregellas Lyrebird history exhibition, Monbulk Historical Society Picnic ground colonial heritage exhibition.

Starting on Sunday 5th May 2024, we are pleased to be able to present Uncle Murrundindi and Family recreating the Bullen Bullen Dreaming Story. The Dreaming teaches how the animals talk to each other and how this story connects now to acceptance and deliverance.

Participate in our women’s EMU Feather Head Dress workshop with indigenous artist and creator Cora Green. Head Dresses are traditionally used for ceremonies, so to have this special opportunity to make your own is unique.

Be emerged in our heritage connections display. We have a rich history here in the Sherbrooke Forest with renowned field specialist Tom Tregellas having done his field studies here on the Superb lyrebird. Step back in time and relive the forest as it was when we were young. Enjoy the displays provided but the community groups dedicated to preserving this majestic forest now and in the future re-cementing those connections.

Finish the week with guided walk from our education officer from Parks Victoria.
