    Hi Miss U
    I found out that there used to be 28 aboriginal tribes in Victoria. Considering that Victoria is one of the smallest States, there must of been heaps of tribes in Australia. there was roughly about 156 tribes in Australia
    Hope that was good information

    Hi Miss U,
    I found out that Mount William, north of Lancefield, is one of the most important cultural sites of the Wurundjeri people, as greenstone was mined for their axe tools.

      Yes there were some unfortunate times during that British settlement. It is important that we do acknowledge this.

    Hi Miss U
    Regarding to my comment I found out that some aboriginal tribes lived in the dessert. They would be the tribes that got smaller and smaller.
    At the start of when the Wurundjeri tribe formed there were only fifteen people. I wonder how it got to be a big tribe?
