Who are the Traditional Owners of Brimbank?
Brimbank has a rich Indigenous history and we acknowledge the Kulin nation of peoples as the traditional owners of the land and the Indigenous community’s right to self –determination.
We recognise the Indigenous community’s continuing spiritual connection to the land and renew our commitment to respect Indigenous beliefs, values and customs as we learn to share our lives and build a future together.
The Wurundjeri people were the custodians of the land in the Port Phillip Bay region, including the current City of Brimbank, for over 40,000 years before European settlement.
Brimbank lies within the area occupied by the Kurung-Jang-Balluk and Marin-Balluk clans of the Wurundjeri people (also known as the Woiwurrung language group) who form part of the larger Kulin Nation. Other groups who occupied land in the area include the Yalukit-Willam and Marpaung-Bullock clans.
