Local historian Paul Haw grew up in the Boort region of Victoria, Dja Dja Wurrung country and was surprised to learn, later in life, about the history of the land and the strength of the community. He is fascinated by the Dja Dja Wurrung landscape and shares his knowledge of scar trees, many of which pre-date colonisation of Australia.
