The first round of meetings in parks and towns across Gippsland has been completed with the face to face discussions with Gunaikurnai people providing the project team with a much greater understanding of the community feelings and aspirations.

There were not large numbers of people at the meetings but those that did attend were active in providing their thoughts and views and benefited from learning about the joint management initiative.

The opportunity for those at the meeting to hear what the Gunaikurnai Rangers had to say about the parks and their role and to discuss the future roles of the Cultural Rangers was a highlight of the meetings.
