Prior to the arrival of Europeans, the Woi wurrung occupied an area which extended from the Werribee River in the south west, Mount Macedon in the north west, Mount William in the Great Divide to the north and across to Mount Baw Baw in the east.   The following is a comprehensive examination of Aboriginal Heritage and Culture in the Monash region.

On behalf of ratepayers and citizens of the municipality, Council pays respect to indigenous elders, past and present and values the lessons of indigenous experience in developing this strategy.
