story of foops and the
organ pipes national park
This is a summary of the history of the FOOPs group and the area today known as Organ Pipes National Park from the 1830s onward, post-European colonisation of the region.
The FOOPs group works ongoingly with the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and we acknowledge that their custodianship of, connection to and knowledge of the land far extends the colonial history or understanding of the area. This information is in no way intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the area, particularly of its Indigenous, pre-colonial and geological histories. Rather, it is a summary of knowledge passed on from past FOOPs members of the history of Organ Pipes National Park, collecting over the decades the FOOPs volunteer group has existed.
