The Heritage Council made the decision to register Yeddung Dhaura, Forde to the Heritage Register.

You can view the Notifiable Instrument for the decision to register.

We were looking at:

Yeddung Dhaura has now been added to the ACT Heritage Register for its material connection to traditional Aboriginal campsite activities.

The Yeddung Dhaura campsite is testament to traditional Aboriginal lifeways and the enduring cultural connection to the land of present-day Aboriginal peoples. The material remains demonstrate that the place was a focal point of community activity in the Gungahlin region, returned to on numerous occasions, and connected through the activities of the Aboriginal peoples to other locations in the landscape. Within the conservation area a substantial portion of remains have been preserved in situ and all previously excavated artefacts have been returned to Country within the delineated area.
