Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
Glen Eira City Council acknowledges the Boonwurrung/Bunurong and the Wurrundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation, as the Traditional Owners and Custodians, and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
We acknowledge and uphold the Traditional Owners' continuing relationship to the land and waterways.
Council extends its respect, to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Making Glen Eira a culturally safe place for Indigenous Australians

To help make our City a welcoming place for Indigenous Australians, we want you to get to know them better. Please see Welcoming Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Glen Eira for more information.
