The area is home to the Wurundjeri of the Kulin nation, whose traditional lands included the surrounding plains. Following the invasion of their land by European settlers in the early 19th century, the Wurundjeri were forced to move further inland and became the Buandik tribe. They were removed to missions and settlements, and, by the mid-20th century, there were no longer any remaining members of the tribe.
