From Tower Hill via The Crags, with their views of Julia Percy Island to the mouth of Yambuk Lake, Mike will tell the story of sea level and climate change and what Aboriginals witnessed for at least 50,000 years.

On Sunday travel to the Budj Bim (Mount Eccles) Volcano in the Budj Bim National Park to hear the story of a ‘Volcano and its Ancient People’ You will visit this ‘Lava or Shield’ volcano that erupted 30,000 years ago, and look into the crater-lake.
