Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council/Department of Premier and Cabinet

The Bundian Way is the best preserved of the ancient east–west Aboriginal routes of southeastern Australia. It stretches from the highest point on the Australian continent, Targangal (Mount Kosciuszko), to the sea at Bilgalera (Fisheries Beach) on Twofold Bay. The Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council (ELALC) wants to develop a walking trail along the route.

WolfPeak was engaged by the ELALC and the Department of Premier and Cabinet to develop the business case to obtain funding for the constriction of Node 1 from Jigamy Farm to Bilgalera.

WolfPeak took a creative approach to the delivery of the project. A local aboriginal person with great knowledge of the track was employed by WolfPeak and all members of the team (environmental engineer, civil engineer, economist and marketer) traveled to Eden, walked the track and spent time understanding its cultural significance and the reasons for its development. This approach produced a very committed and focused team which was able to deliver a business case that was what the ELALC wanted, was exceptional value for money and very strongly justified the funding of the track.
