120,000-50,000 Years Ago

120,000 – 50,000 years ago

At Weereewaa (Lake George) sometime between 120,000 and 50,000 years ago there was a marked increase in charcoal remains in the sediment of the lake bed and the first expansions of fire tolerant eucalyptus vegetation.  That suggests the possibility of the presence of humans with firesticks.   (Based on a core sample taken from the Lake by Gurdup Singh in1979 and cited in Josephine Flood, The Moth Hunters 1980).
