Poles positioned

Eight new poles have been installed along the Dreaming Trail at the George Pentland Botanic Gardens in Frankston. 

The ironbark poles, replacing ones that had succumbed to weather and white ants, tell the Boonwurrung people’s story of the Mornington Peninsula’s creation: “A long time ago, Bunjil the eagle asked Mindi the snake to help create the land.

Mindi was the one that created the rivers and valleys and now she lays waiting beneath the Peninsula. The Mindi path is a reminder that creation is precious and that we must respect and care for mother earth.” Photos: Mark Calleja
