Mount Alexander Aboriginal sites survey

An archaeological survey in 2012 investigated Mount Alexander (Lanjanuc), near Castlemaine, to locate and document Aboriginal sites as part of Parks Victoria’s management of the area. Sites were found to be concentrated on the summit, upper ridges and escarpments of the hill, especially around granite outcrops and boulders. The distribution reflects routes of movement and access across and along the mountain, and suggests that certain land forms served as places of meeting, habitation and strategic significance.
