Most models of Australian Aboriginal societies are based on studies in either tropical or arid environments. As a contrast to these I have chosen to examine the human ecology of Aboriginal societies that existed in the well-watered regions of south-eastern Australia. The study area chosen was the Western District of south-western Victoria. The research design includes the examination of two bodies of data, ethnographic and archaeological, viewed in relation to the region's ecology. Attention has been placed on the construction of models of subsistence and settlement.
