Aboriginal peoples have lived in the area now known as the Corangamite region for thousands of generations.

We acknowledge their Ancestors and Elders, past and present.

  • We will integrate Aboriginal engagement and participation in the planning, governance, implementation and review of our programs and projects
  • Our people will be actively supported to engage Aboriginal communities and to build partnerships
  • Our Aboriginal engagement and participation approaches will be well planned, tailored, targeted and evaluated
  • We will provide meaningful opportunities for Aboriginal people to contribute to strategies and initiatives
  • We will work transparently and respectfully with Aboriginal people, and establish clear roles and expectations

The two Traditional Owners of the lands within the Corangamite Region are the Wadawurrung and Eastern Maar.
