Beaumaris Healthlands and Reserves
The original inhabitants and traditional owners of the area we now call Beaumaris are the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. Their land and water country would have been abundant in natural resources. On the land, seasonally swampy areas would attract waterbirds and the patchwork of grasslands, heathlands and woodlands were rich in other wildlife. Fire-stick farming is very likely to have been used by First Nations people to maintain the productivity of these ecosystems and would have ensured the long-term survival of their remarkable biodiversity. Rocky reefs in the bay would also have provided plentiful resources within easy reach. It is hard to think of anywhere more idyllic to live.
Today Beaumaris is an area mixed with houses, schools, shops, cafes and we are also lucky enough to still have areas of reserves and sanctuaries.
