Victoria 150 Growing together 1964-5
This tablet commemorates the BUNURONG people, land holders of the Westernport region from time immemorial, who were among the first Aborigines in Victoria to experience contact with Europeans. The presence of sealing and whaling crews from the 1820s, and of permanent settlers from the 1830s, brought diseases fatal to the Aborigines and began disintegration of traditional tribal life.
