Renaming Fullwood Drive Reserve

Background

Fullwood Drive Reserve is a small conservation reserve located at 76 Fullwood Drive, Sunbury in a residential area close to Mt Holden Reserve and is primarily set aside to protect an Aboriginal earth ring. It is one of five earth, or Bora, rings identified in the Sunbury area making Sunbury a very significant Aboriginal place.

It is proposed that Fullwood Drive Reserve be officially named ‘Mumilam Korobine’, which means ‘Western Initiation Ground’ in the Aboriginal Woi Wurrung language. Native spear grass is also a prominent plant that grows within this reserve, as it is in the Sunbury Fields Grassland.

Read the proposal

Council’s reasons for considering this proposal are detailed in Council Report number GE535 - Naming Proposals for Three Conservation Reserves in Sunbury with Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Significance - from the Council meeting of 12 July 2021.

In accordance with the Naming Rules for Places in Victoria – Statutory Requirements for Naming Roads, Features and Localities – 2016, and Hume City Council’s Place Names Policy, Council is inviting local residents to have their say on this naming proposal.

Please complete your submission no later than Friday 22 October 2021.
