In Woi wurrung, the language of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, Maggolee means ‘here in this place’.

Maggolee celebrates good practice in Victorian local government Aboriginal engagement and reconciliation and aims to bring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, local communities and the councils that serve them together.

The Maggolee website was developed by Reconciliation Victoria, with funding from the Victorian Government, as a resource for local councils to work more closely with Aboriginal communities.

The site includes information on policy and programs, protocols and cultural awareness, key contacts, relevant local data, news and events.

It contains information about each of the 79 Victorian local government areas, and about actions councils can take across key function areas to build closer relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and to progress reconciliation. Reconciliation Victoria developed and maintains this site in collaboration with the Municipal Association of Victoria, the Victorian Local Governance Association, LGPro, the Koori Youth Council, Aboriginal Victoria and Local Government Victoria.
