Indigenous Reconciliation

Stonnington sits on the land of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation.

According to the 2011 Census, the Stonnington Local Government Area had 178 residents who identified themselves as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. Of these, 55.6 per cent were male and 44.4 per cent were female.

The City of Stonnington respects the special relationship Indigenous Australians have with the land, and acknowledges their right to live according to their own values and customs, subject to Australian law.
