Changing the name of Council is part of a reconciliation and healing journey.
This toolkit is for anyone wanting to learn more about Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung history of the area and about Moreland City Council’s transition to a new name – one we can all be proud of. The resource includes features of local organisations leading reconciliation action, and ways you can get involved.
A history report on the origins of the name "Moreland" was prepared by Dr James Lesh,
Deakin University. This resource is independent historic research highlighting the origins of
the name "Moreland" and history of the area.
