About the Technical Paper
The Central Victorian Goldfields are a cultural landscape where the modifications to the natural ecosystems following the mid-nineteenth century gold rushes have left a series of layers of physical evidence which gives the area its distinctive character. Understanding the history of sequential occupation of the land which resulted in this layering is essential for conserving the evidence in the cultural landscapes.
