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.
The City of Melbourne respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land, the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation and pays respect to their Elders, past and present.
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.
