As part of the Adventure Challenge badge, we visited the Koorie Heritage Trust at Federation Square and Birrarung Marr. We saw an exhibition called “Stitching Together the Songlines” which included possum and kangaroo skin cloaks. At Birrarung Marr we saw various art installations celebrating Aboriginal Australian heritage described in the book Melbourne Dreaming.
