The land surrounding Mount Alexander is “country” for the Dja Dja Wurrung. In using this term and concept as the name for our organisation, we hope to acknowledge and encourage the concept of stewardship for the land by all its inhabitants. The following links provide more information on the Dja Dja Wurrung and on managing cultural heritage on private and public land.
