Yeddonba

Yeddonba

The Yeddonba Aboriginal Cultural Site is located at the base of Mt Pilot, in the Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park, approximately 30 minutes drive from Rutherglen.

Considered a sacred site by local indigenous people, the Yeddonba Aboriginal Cultural Site features the art of the Dhudhuroa people, the dominant indigenous clan of the area and a sub-clan of the Pangarang people of the Goulburn Valley. The base of Mt Pilot was used by these clans, along with the Quat Quatta and Minjambutta clans as a spiritual and ceremonial site.

A spiritual place

The Yeddonba site boasts many significant areas including a rock shelter and bush tucker area. The site is of particular archaeological importance as it features an Aboriginal red-ochre painting, which is believed to be of a Tasmanian tiger (thylacine), supporting the belief that the paintings date back to when the animal once inhabited the mainland. The thylacine, along with the goanna and snake, were the spirit animals of the local clans with the site serving as an important ritual location for the clan leaders.
