Aboriginal culture and heritage

Welcome to the Swan Hill Rural City Council.

‘Puthekaty’ means ‘welcome’ in the Wamba Wamba language.

Swan Hill Rural City Council acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land in which we live, and pays its respects to their elders, past and present.

The Wamba Wamba, Latji Latji, Tatti Tatti, Wadi Wadi and Barapa Barapa peoples are the original custodians of the land known as the Swan Hill Rural City, our region is rich and diverse in its Aboriginal culture and history.

We are committed to Aboriginal engagement and reconciliation and aim to bring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, local communities and the councils along for the journey to strengthen relationships and enhance the local community.
