Surf Coast Shire spans the traditional lands of the Wadawurrung and Eastern Maar people. We acknowledge them as the Traditional Owners and Protectors of this place. We acknowledge their ancestors who cared for the land, rivers and sea - and all of its creatures - for thousands of generations. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future who continue on this path.
