Melbourne Central – KULIN COUNTRY
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boonerwrung people as the traditional custodians of the land on which Melbourne Central resides.
We acknowledge the Elders past, present and emerging.
Melbourne Central rests on the traditional land of the Wurundjeri and Boonerwrung people, part of the Kulin Nation.
The Kulin Nation’s collective territory extends around Port Phillip and Western Port, up into the Great Dividing Range and the Loddon and Goulburn River valleys.
This land provided everything the Kulin needed, including food, water, medicine and shelter, and they treated it with great respect and care.
The Kulin sustained themselves by fishing, hunting and gathering from the rich food sources of Port Phillip and the abundant grasslands surrounding this area.
Melbourne Central extends a warm welcome to all First Nations people and we pay our respect to their ongoing connection to land, water and community.
