The Wurundjeri people were the first owners of this part of the country and Council recognises them as the custodians of the cultural heritage of this land.
The City of Yarra, especially the suburbs of Fitzroy and Collingwood, hold special historical significance for the Aboriginal community. These areas were a major hub of social and political activity for the Aboriginal community, and today remain a critical centre for Aboriginal services and organisations.
Yarra Council aims to uphold the proud Indigenous history of Yarra and to support the rights of the Aboriginal community. Council is also committed to building strong partnerships with the local Aboriginal community, to continue the journey towards reconciliation.
