Indigenous Representative Organisations of Bayside

“Aboriginal ownership of country is a complex matter and there is a tendency to want to placed fixed boundaries around the extent of traditional tribal territory.

This probably did not reflect the reality of traditional occupation. The boundaries of territory between the Woiwurrung and Boon wurrung for example, were probably very fluid with frequent contact occurring between them” The Boon wurrung People of Bayside.

There are three incorporated Indigenous Community organisations that claim some traditional connection with the Bayside area.
