Tourism hope for ancient Aboriginal pathway

Traditional owners from the New South Wales south east have completed a major on-ground survey of an ancient Aboriginal pathway.

The Bundian Way stretches 300km from Mt Kosciuszko to Fisheries Beach, near Eden.

A team of 20 people have walked the track this week to explore the potential for a new tourism venture.

The Project Officer with the Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council, John Blay, says it has a lot to offer.

“It’s like thousands of backyards one after another,” he said.

“There are so many different places along the route.

“It was amazing to find massive yam gardens in wild country as well as along the Monaro.

“The beauty of some of those landscapes across the Monaro is awesome, just as when you come down into the coastal forests.

“It’s quite wonderful what you get to see.”
