Bryon Powell shares dreaming stories from places across Wadawurrung country.

He shares how the Wadawurrung people were created by Bunjil, our spirit creator, at Kareet Bareet, now known as Black Hill near Gordon, not far from Ballaarat. This area was once covered in forest but is now largely a farming community, mainly of potatoes, due to the rich volcanic soils. That is why the Wadawurrung are known as the red soil people.
