Layers of Settlement


The Layers of Settlement symposium recognises the distinctive history of this region, stretching back into the deep time of Australia’s past, the more recent history of pastoralism and agriculture, and contemporary migration patterns.

It is currently home 67 different cultural groups, including First Nations people and immigrants from around the world. The region has been shaped by global developments which have taken their own distinctive shape in interaction with the environment and history of area. As agriculturalists and residents respond to the particularities of the environment and the cultures of water it has generated, climate change presents new challenges and horizons.

This symposium aims to peel back some of the different layers of settlement, and interrogate the meaning of community, environment and change that stems from the layering effect.
