Wilson’s Promontory in Victoria, Australia: Colourful Continent, Irene and Michael Morcombe 1975

"The three traditional owner groups with a connection to Wilson’s Promontory are the Gunaikurnai, Bunurong and Boon Wurrung people. The Prom is named ‘Yirik’ and ‘Warnoon’ by the traditional owners. It is a sacred site for the traditional people who have visited the Prom for thousands of years. Evidence of their presence remains in the extensive middens (shell deposits) behind many of the beaches and in stories like those of Loo-Errn and Tiddalik.

Wamoon (Yirik) is the home of the spirit ancestor of the Brataualung people known as - ‘Loo-errn’, the guardian of his people. Tiddalik was a mean frog who got up to some mischief in the “Dreamtime” belonging to the Aboriginal people of South Gippsland but Tiddalik escaped our corner of Australia a long time ago and can be found in all parts of Australia and in many other countries today.”
