A registered site of national significance known as the Golden Hole, the Clybucca-Stuarts Point midden complex adjoins the Yarrahapinni wetlands and is part of the Clybucca historic site. It is the largest estuarine midden in temperate Australia and runs almost continuously for a distance of 14km. It is renowned for its extensive, diverse and well preserved midden deposits which provide a valuable insight into continuous coastal occupation by Aboriginal people dating from about 2500 years ago to about 6000 years ago.

Iterative Draft versions

The original drafts had the content as a continuous story. For ease of reading and to provide visual anchor points headings were added in to provide a quick overview of the message being told.

This beautiful aboriginal illustration was coloured in Illustrator to match the various draft versions.

Without subheadings

And the final!
