Aunty Frances Nicholson | Shepparton - Yorta Yorta Country
The wetlands are alive with Badja Bayaderra the Totem of the Yorta Yorta people, the Long Neck Turtle. Badja Bayaderra can be found in many slow-moving water bodies such as swamps, dams and lakes. They like a soft sandy area with nearby logs or rocks to bask on.
Victoria Park lake will come alive with mythical, larger than life turtles that slowly move amongst the water plants, around the wetlands.
