Traditional Custodians

Brimbank City Council respectfully acknowledges and recognises the Wurundjeri and Bunurong peoples as the Traditional Custodians of this land and pays respect to their Elders past, present and future.

Council also acknowledges local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents of Brimbank and their Elders for their ongoing contribution to the diverse culture of our community and their contribution to the development of the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

In much of our content, we use First Nations people when referring to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people. We recognise it is appropriate to use different words in different situations.  In some instances, we use Traditional Custodians and while State and Territory Governments often refer to Traditional Owners, the terms are considered interchangeable.  Many First Nations people prefer to refer to themselves as Custodians.
