Acknowledgement of traditional owners

The Boon Wurrung* are Indigenous Australians of the Kulin Nation and were the first inhabitants of the area that is the municipality of Glen Eira.

Glen Eira City Council respectfully acknowledges the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, who have traditional connections to the land now known as Glen Eira. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge and uphold their continuing relationship to this land.
