Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned ReportOther


This report investigates the impact of predicted climate and related sea level change on Aboriginal cultural heritage sites in the Gippsland Lakes area, GunaiKurnai Country (East Gippsland,Victoria). More specifically, we investigate the impact of predicted sea level rise, storm tide levels and susceptibility to erosion. The report builds on objectives outlined in the GunaiKurnai Whole-of-Country Plan (2015) and in the GunaiKurnai and Victorian Government Joint Management Plan (2018).
