The Bangerang people traditionally occupied the Murray/Goulburn region, inhabiting an area spanning from just south of Shepparton, across to Echuca in the west, up to Deniliquin (NSW) in the north, and from Finley to Katandra in the east. The Murray River was and still is our lifeline. It offers many forms of food such as fish, yabbies, muscles and crayfish. On the land, we traditionally lived off food such as kangaroos, emus, birds and ducks. These foods were all close at hand and our people didn’t have to move or travel far for their food sources. We had the resources around to make our weapons, tools, and nets to catch our food.
