Gubur Dhaura is a traditional camp site, ochre source and important Aboriginal cultural place, now situated within the growing suburbs of Gungahlin, Canberra. It also has a significant European mining history. This project involved the creation of a conservation management plan and an interpretation and implementation plan for the site.
NOHC conducted a detailed ethno-historical and archaeological review and significance assessment of the site and using this baseline, prepared conservation, management, interpretation and implementation plans to guide the future use and integration of the site as a reserve within an urban landscape. The masterplan was further subsequently refined by Redbox Design Group during a construction phase in 2010.
