Welcome to Melbourne
The City of Melbourne respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of our Land. For the Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri), Boonwurrung, Taungurong, Dja Dja Wurrung and the Wathaurung groups who form 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. We warmly welcome visitors from all over our world to meet in Melbourne, with a unique spirit that is unmistakably Australian.
