Acknowledgment of Country

We, in the spirit of Reconciliation, acknowledge the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land now known as the City of Maroondah, where Indigenous Australians have performed age-old ceremonies.

We acknowledge and respect their unique ability to care for Country and their deep spiritual connection to it. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.

Maroondah City Council is home to: 

  • 115,043 residents, and 
  • 9,000 businesses that employ 36,000 people.

The municipality blends the best of city and country, offering a great lifestyle and high quality facilities. The name 'Maroondah' is derived from the aboriginal word meaning "leaf", which symbolises Maroondah's green environment.
