The Nillumbik Reconciliation Group grew out of an Advisory Committee delegated by the Nillumbik Shire Council to arrange a ceremony promoting Reconciliation. As a result of that Committee’s recommendations, a formal document of Acknowledgement, Apology and Commitment was presented by the Council to Wurundjeri Elders at a Gayip (the Woiwurrung word for an inter-clan gathering or ceremony) in May 1998 at Wingrove Park.
See the Youtube video of this event.
In 2008 the Council unanimously passed a Charter setting a Reconciliation framework for all Shire initiatives and activities. NRG continues to work with Council on an Action Plan promoting Reconciliation in Nillumbik.
