Budj Bim heritage areas

Budj Bim heritage areas include the Tyrendarra Indigenous Protected Area, the Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape, the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape. The creation story of the local Gunditjmara people is based on the eruption of Budj Bim more than 30,000 years ago, it was via this event. The Tyrendarra lava flow changed the drainage pattern of the region, created large wetlands. From some thousands of years before European settlement, the Gunditjmara people developed a system of aquaculture which channelled the water of the Darlot Creek into adjacent lowlying areas trapping short-finned eels and other fish in a series of weirs and channels; this provided a year-round supply of eels which were harvested with woven traps and smoked in hollows of the manna gum, permitted a forager society to develop into a settled society constructing permanent stone dwellings. The engineered wetlands provided the basis to sustain large groups of people to dwell permanently in the vicinity; the first European to see the traps was Chief Protector of Aborigines, George Augustus Robinson, in July 1841.

He reported "an immense piece of ground trenched and banked, resembling the work of civilized man but which on inspection I found to be the work of the Aboriginal natives, purposefully constructed for catching eels", in a swampy area near Mount William, in south-western Victoria. He estimated; the evidence was buried or ignored for 135 years, until Peter Coutts of the Victoria Archaeological Survey carried out surveys at Lake Condah, altogether different terrain, in the 1970s. He found extensive fish-trapping systems, with hundreds of metres of excavated channels and dozens of basalt block dam walls, the volume of which he estimated at “many hundreds of tonnes”. Europeans constructed drainage channels in the 1880s and 1950s, but in 1977 heavy rains revealed more of the original work, as well as house foundations made of basalt blocks. Dating the use of channels by various means and different people put them at up to 8,000 years old. Harry Lourandos, researcher from the University of Sydney, examined investigated a huge Aboriginal fish trap at Toolondo, 110 kilometres north of Lake Condah, which he named "eel farms".

In the 1990s and 2000s, 3D computer maps recreated the channels, showing that the stone walls were built across the lava flow to form a complex system of artificial ponds to hold floodwaters and eels at different stages of growth. Researcher Heather Builth called the systems "aquaculture"; the discovery of these large-scale farming techniques and manipulation of the landscape, highlighted in Bruce Pascoe's best-selling book Dark Emu in 2014, shows that the Indigenous inhabitants were not only hunter gatherers, but cultivators and farmers. After the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires burnt more than 7,000 hectares around Lake Condah and in the Budj Bim National Park, further areas of aquaculture concealed under vegetation, were revealed, in an area known as the Muldoon trap complex. A smaller system, including a channel of about 25 metres long had been hidden in the long grass and other vegetation. A further cultural heritage survey is planned, in collaboration with archaeologists familiar with the site and local Indigenous rangers.

After the European settlement began from the late 1830s, the rocks and uneven land of the lava flow permitted attacks on settlers and the means to escape from reprisal as the terrain was unsuited to horses. Attempts to colonise the Gunditjmara led to the Eumeralla Wars which did not conclude until the 1860s. Afterwards, many Aboriginal people were displaced and the Victorian Government created Aboriginal reserves to house them; this area comprises the Peters site between the Fitzroy River and Darlot Creek purchased by the Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation in May 2010 and the Kurtonitj wetlands to the north acquired by the Corporation in September 2009. Much of the area was part of the Mount Clay squatting run and the property Keeleeng. To the south of the Australian National Heritage List area (on both sides of the Princes Highway the landscape has been compromised by the removal of stone for fencing and, more the crushing of stone to provide material for road building.

As a result, most rock features have disappeared. This area includes the Mount Eccles National Park and the Condah Mission Station at Lake Condah on Darlot Creek to the west 38°03′44″S 141°50′00″E, with the addition of purchased properties linking the two and in the east towards Lake Gorrie. Mount Eccles National Park at Lake Surprise encompasses 61.2 square kilometres and includes many interesting geologic features such as lava flows, lava caves, scoria cones and crater lakes. The park has a campground and the base of the vents supports Lake Surprise, closed for swimming due to blue-green algae issues; the dreaming of local Koori nations incorporates tales of volcanic eruptions from the past. Mount Napier is located 25 kilometres northeast of Budj Bim. Lake Condah was first been happened upon by European settlers in 1841, when David Edgar and William Thompson Edgar were travelling through the area. Edgar gave it the name Lake Condon.

On February 13, 1947, WILK first signed on the air. The first studios were located at 88 North Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre; the station's original broadcast frequency was 1450 kHz, operating at 250 watts during its early years. In 1951 WSCR in Scranton moved from 1000 kHz to 1320, making it possible for WILK to move to AM 980 with a three tower array, increasing its power to 5000 watts non-directional by day and 1000 watts directional at night, it was an ABC radio network affiliate. On February 6, 1954, the station signed on a television station, WILK-TV Channel 34; because WILK had been a long-time ABC Radio affiliate, WILK-TV took ABC Television affiliation. That station merged with Scranton's WARM-TV to form WNEP-TV on Channel 16. From the 1990s until 2005, WILK was the originating station for the WILK Radio Network. However, that distinction now belongs to FM sister station WILK-FM.
