    Budj Bim Restoration Project

    The Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape is a section of volcanic plain that encompasses the area from Mt Eccles to the sea.

In 2010, Lake Condah was restored and the Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners are now focusing on protecting and restoring other waterways in the landscape.
