Miss Ross Hill

  • Melbourne street

Miss Ross Hill and the sand hills of Mulwala have long been regarded as a significant site and traditional burial ground of the Aboriginal people. A burial site is a very significant Aboriginal place. Where the ground was soft Indigenous people buried their dead. Sand dunes, middens, rock shelters and sometimes specially constructed mounds were also used for burials.
The sand hill area of land overlooking Lake Mulwala was given to the Council by Miss Ross of Yarrawonga on the condition that it be reserved as a park & recreation area for public use.
The monument constructed on site was to commemorate renowned explorer Charles Sturt who passed through here 29 May 1838.
Look for the “Pilot” paddle steamer wreck that sank in 1938 and now sits on the bottom of the Lake Mulwala muddy floor about 300 m from Miss Ross Hill.
