Criminologist Richard Evans to be quoted at Gippsland Heritage Walk
Research by Deakin Criminologist Dr Richard Evans will be quoted as part of the soon to be unveiled Gippsland Heritage Walk. A passage from Richard’s book, Disasters that Changed Australia, will be included on one of 12 panels that will be included along the walk.
The quote reads:
“By learning new skills and developing intimate knowledge of the land and waters, plants and animals, and by creating cultures which preserved this knowledge, Aboriginal people were able to sustain some of the longest continual human occupations known anywhere on earth.”
The Gippsland Heritage Walk is located around Kernot Lake in Morwell which is about 600 metres, along which there will be stations and at each station 6 panels of information on Gippsland history. The initiative is organised by Gippsland Immigration Park Inc, who are a group of volunteers, who also have the support of Regional Development Victoria and Latrobe City.
The Walk will be opened by Jaala Pulford MP on Sunday 8th November 2015. For more details about the Official Opening click here.
