Budj Bim Cultural Landscape

UNESCO World Heritage Listed

The Budj Bim Cultural Landscape in south west Victoria has formally been recognised on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

It's the only Australian World Heritage property listed exclusively for its Aboriginal cultural values and features the earliest living example of aquaculture in the world.

The Gunditjmara people have worked closely with the Victorian and Australian Governments over the past five years to develop Budj Bim's World Heritage nomination. The site was added to the list in July 2019.
