THe Lake Gorrie area was an area of resistance to European expansion in the 1840s.
However in the subsequent years of negotiated resistance, many Gunditjmara people worked with the European farmers in constructing dry stone walls for holding pens and runs for sheep dipping whilst living and working on pastoral properties.
