Burnside’s Bald Hills: What Has Become of Them?

Join Colin Harris as he details how the once bald hills of Burnside have transformed over the past century. The foothills suburb of Burnside was once backed by bald hills, kept open and grassy by systematic Aboriginal firing. Following colonisation, livestock continued to keep them bare, but in recent decades the situation has changed dramatically.
