The Whittlesea Reconciliation Group acknowledges the Wurundjeri Willum people as the traditional custodians of this land.
The WRG is a key reference group to Council on the continuing reconciliation process and works towards increasing understanding of Aboriginal people and their culture by bringing people together to support reconciliation.
Vision: a connected community respecting Aboriginal people as the first peoples of Australia - their history and culture, through actions supporting reconciliation.
On National Sorry Day 2014, Council and the WRG unveiled the City of Whittlesea's Sorry Space - a community reflective space dedicated to members of the Stolen Generations and the Traditional Owners of this land, the Wurundjeri Willum people.
The Sorry Space displays a plaque that was presented to Council by Connecting Home and features a stone plinth for smoking ceremonies and fire rituals.
