Who are the Kulin Language Groups?
The Kulin federation is an alliance of five distinct but closely related Aboriginal language groups in south central Victoria. Today, many Kulin people living in and around Melbourne and central Victoria continue to practice and strengthen their culture.
The Kulin language groups are:
Wathaurong (Watha wurrung) of the western plains
Wurundjeri (Woi wurrung) of the Yarra River catchment
Bunurong (Boon wurrung) of the bays and south coast
Taungurung of the Goulburn River catchment
Dja Dja wurrung of the northwest region (Loddon River)

Further 'Where Do I Live?' Resources
All Australians, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, are geographically connected by the land we live on. Understanding the cultural significance of the land you live on and the history that’s occurred there is one of the first steps you can take to end the disconnect between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and contribute to a better shared future.
The ‘Where Do I Live?’ resources are designed to help you do this, bringing together information about the Indigenous custodians, culture, language and history of the local area where you live.
