Murmungee Basin 

At the time of the arrival of Europeans, the Murmungee Basin was cared for by renowned Aboriginal warrior‚ Merriman. In 1824 Hume and Hovell became the first Europeans to stand on the edge of the Basin, not far from where Murmungee Lookout is today. They admired the Ovens River country below as ‘extremely beautiful’, being covered in honeysuckle (silver banksia), grass trees and wild flax, and scantily wooded with timber trees of the most valuable description. Thirteen years later, Aboriginal occupation of Murmungee was usurped by grazier William Bowman. Little changed again until 1853, when gold was discovered in the Buckland Valley, and miners poured down from the Beechworth hills into Murmungee through a precipitously steep pass, which they dubbed the Buckland Gap. By the late 19th century, residents of Beechworth considered this to be one of their famous beauty spots‚ loved for its giant blue gums and alpine views. – Jacqui Durrant
