Brief History

The Gadubanud people lived in the Cape Otway region until the mid 19th century. Middens along the coast reveal the remains of shell fish collected by the women while the men fished.

The first European settlement in Wye River was made by Alexander and Donald McRae who established a fishing camp in the valley in 1882, while their cousin, Alex McLennan, made camp at Kennett River.
