This midden interpretive sign is installed at either end of a bike/walking trail and tells a generic story of aboriginal occupation of the region.
Midden Interpretive Sign
The presence of middens on the land around Wooli dates back 6,400 years. Prior to European settlement an estimated population of 6,300 people lived in the area which made it the most heavily populated region of northern NSW at the time.
Gumbaynggirr and Yaegl Nations
Middens are ‘gathering places’, and are still used today. Yaegl and Gumbaynggirr people would hunt and feast on the abundant marine animals, particularly shellfish and fish.
The final installed sign looks fantastic with the dark green frame blending into the landscape.
