Aboriginal Heritage Education at Penna
The shallow waters of Pitt Water provided a relatively weather protected site for our Indigenous people to live beside and harvest from the sea. The area is rich in shell middens and you can see the ocassional stone flint amongst the rocks on the shore. Caleb Pedder is an Aboriginal Heritage Officer who works for various archaelogical firms. His work helps to survey and protect sites of Aboriginal significance.
