Yalukit Willam:The River People of Port Phillip

Did you know that the site of the South Melbourne Town Hall was once a significant meeting place or "willam" for Aboriginal people to conduct ceremony? Or that Albert Park Lake was once a wetland as diverse as Kakadu in the Northern Territory?

Yalukit Willam: The River People of of Port Phillip by local historian Meyer Eidelson contains a suburb by suburb account of historical events sourced from early records and the point of view of descendants and contemporaries of the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung. 
Please note that the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages in August 2017 revised the spelling of the clan name to Yalukut Weelam.
