Indigenous Reconciliation

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

According to the 2016 Census, the Stonnington Local Government Area had 350 residents who identified themselves as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

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.
