Wadawurrung Welcome to Country signs
The Wadawurrung Welcome to Country signs project involved the installation of 22 signs which recognise the traditional owners of the land on which they were placed, the Wadawurrung people.
The signs celebrate Aboriginal culture and demonstrate recognition and respect for the Wadawurrung people as the traditional owners and custodians of the land. The Wadawurrung traditional land is bounded by Anglesea, Werribee, Bacchus Marsh, Beaufort, Streatham and Derrinallum.
The signs were developed by the department, VicRoads and the Wadawurrung people, through the Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation.
The $62,500 project was partly funded by the Transport Investing in Regions initiative ($50,000) and VicRoads ($12,500).

- Great Ocean Road, Aireys Inlet
