This report is centred on the homestead and outbuildings, which have been occupied by early European settlers since the 1830s. The roles and lives of Aboriginal people are interwoven throughout the report, with the interpretation of pre- and post-contact Aboriginal occupation of the site determined in consultation with the local Aboriginal community.

The objective of the Conservation Management Plan and Interpretation Plan (CM&IP) is to identify, direct and achieve long term conservation and management outcomes for the Currango Historic Precinct and provide interactive opportunities for day and overnight visitors to absorb the history of Currango.

The CM&IP is presented in three parts:

  • Volume 1 is the Manager’s Field Manual, including the Inventory of buildings and items;
  • Volume 2 is the Supporting Information and Analysis; and
  • Volume 3 is the Interpretation Plan.

The Interpretation Plan represents the main Interpretation plan outcomes and concepts that are recommended for the appropriate interpretation of the place.
