POBBLEBONK - PANEL 6

ABORIGINAL NAMES
The local Aboriginal groups who occupied these lands for thousands of years would have known these animals intimately. With this in mind we have shown the local Aboriginal names for animals where possible. These are either from the Woiwurrung (W) or Boonwurrung (B) languages. In some cases the names are species specific, such as ‘tiger snake’, or otherwise simply ‘snake’.
