Renaming Fullwood Drive Reserve

Consultation has concluded

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.
