Welcome to Country

This region is the Country of the Bunurong, Wurundjeri and Wadawurrung people.  They have lived in and been connected to the land, water, plants and animals of this area for many thousands of years.

The Bunurong, Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Wadawurrung people are acknowledged as the Traditional Owners of this land and we offer our respect to their Elders past and present.

The Registered Aboriginal Parties have kindly provided the following statements as a Welcome to Country and an introduction to this Regional Catchment Strategy.
