The original inhabitants of the area were the Pallittorre Clan of the Northern Nation of Aboriginal Tasmanians. The North Midlands Nation name for Quamby Bluff was lartitickitheker (lar.tit.ick.it.he.ker). There are caves south of Meander, in the Great Western Tiers, with deposits showing aboriginal habitation, though these have not been dated. The deposits were either left by the Pallittorre, or their neighbours the Luggermairrernerpairre who were part of the neighbouring Big River tribe. The Pallittorre probably inhabited the area for thousands of years; aborigines are believed to have lived in Tasmania for more than 30,000 years. They maintained cleared grassy plains by regular careful burning, and used this method also to control undergrowth in the forests. This land management technique enabled easier hunting and food gathering. Over an 18 Day period in July, 1827, 100 Indigenous Pallittorre people were massacred by Corporals William Shiner and James Lingren from 40th Regt; stockmen Thomas Baker, James Cubit, Henry Smith and William White in response to the killing of three stockmen.

A Bushfire Emergency Warning Message For Miena
Issued At: 21/01/2019 2:19pm
There is a bushfire at Miena. The fire will put Miena at very high risk within the next two hours. This fire will be difficult to control. Burning embers, falling on Miena will threaten your home before the main fire. Smoke and ash will make it difficult to see and breathe. If your home is well prepared for very high risk fires and you can actively defend it, it should provide shelter. If your home is unprepared go to a safer location now only if the path is clear. There is an Evacuation Centre at Bothwell Town Hall, Alexander Street Bothwell. There is a nearby safer place at Miena Community Hall. If your family has made a bushfire survival plan, use it now. If you don’t live near Miena, stay away.

284/365 | Pumphouse Point in Lake St Clair

Lake St Clair, like much of the highlands of Tasmania, is the result of the action of ice during previous glaciations. The basin in which the lake lies was scoured out by the action of glaciers. Moraines, where debris is forced to the margins of the glacier, run along part of the length of the lake. The lake is the deepest in Australia, with a maximum depth of 167 metres.

Aboriginal people called the lake Leeawuleena, meaning ‘sleeping water’.

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
— Lord Byron
