Aboriginal Heritage

Monash Council acknowledges the Traditional Owners of this land, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong People, and recognises their continuing connection to the land and waterways. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

Changes to land boundaries

On July 1 2021, new boundary variations in relation to Registered Aboriginal Parties (RAPs) were put into effect by the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council (VAHC).

Monash Council acknowledges that we are on the traditional land of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation.

A searchable map of the new RAP boundaries is now available at: https://achris.vic.gov.au/weave/wca.html

To find the relevant RAP for the area where you live, work and play, enter a specific address in the top right-hand corner.
