Fitzroy Aboriginal Heritage Walking Trail



In 2009, the Yarra Council developed a walking map to enable local residents, tourists and historians to take a self-guided tour through Indigenous Fitzroy.

The Wurundjeri (Woiwurrung) people have lived, worked and looked after the land in the area now known as Fitzroy since the beginning of time.

Despite the effects of colonisation, Aboriginal people and culture survived and the strong bonds between families and clans could not be broken.

From the 1920s onwards, the Aboriginal community of Melbourne began to steadily increase with the wave of Aboriginal people coming from the missions.

By the 1950s, Fitzroy supported a community of more than 300 Aboriginal people, with many living in surrounding inner city suburbs. During this time, Fitzroy not only became the largest Aboriginal community in Victoria, it also became the social and political hub of Aboriginal Melbourne.
