In this subject students explore the natural and cultural characteristics of riverine, box and ironbark forests, and mountain and alpine areas of south-eastern Australia. Changing attitudes towards the land are explored by a chronological examination of Aboriginal and European occupation of the continent. Current land management issues are explored through a number of case studies, with particular emphasis on land use conflicts in the Australian alpine area.
