Welcome to the City of Melbourne.
Womindjeka / Wominjeka means ‘welcome’ in the language groups of the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation.
REAIE Acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of this Nation and their continuing connection and custodianship of this Country and Culture. We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and emerging, we commit to following their leadership and care for the ancestral lands and waterways that our meetings take place on. We respect and acknowledge that their lands were never ceded.
For the Kulin Nation, Melbourne has always been an important meeting place for events of social, educational, sporting and cultural significance.
Today we are proud to say that Melbourne is a significant gathering place for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
