The Australian Government, through the Indigenous Land Corporation, today handed back to Wurundjeri people the title of two properties that protect significant Indigenous cultural sites in Victoria.
The Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Jenny Macklin, presented to the Wurundjeri people the titles to the Mt William Axe Quarry west of Kilmore and the Sunbury Earthen Rings to the north west of Tullamarine Airport at a ceremony near Kilmore.
The Wurundjeri Tribe and Land Compensation and Cultural Heritage Council Inc will now take ownership of the land, and ensure the long-term preservation of significant cultural heritage.
