The Wadawurrung and Gadubanud people are the traditional owners of the land around Anglesea and Aireys Inlet with Gadubanud country generally being to the west of Painkalac Creek and Wadawurrung country to the east.

The Wadawurrung people are the Traditional Owners of an area of land bounded by Aireys Inlet, Anglesea, Werribee, Bacchus Marsh, Beaufort, Streatham and Derrinallum. The Wadawurrung people are members of the Kulin nation and have looked after and cared for the land for over a thousand generations, still caring for it to this very day.

The Gadubanud people cared for the rainforest plateau of the Otway Ranges and rugged coastline of Cape Otway in Western Victoria covering the present towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay for thousands of years. After 1846 there are no recorded interactions between the Gadubanud and European settlers, although the absence of written records is not proof of their extinction and there are Aboriginal people in the area today who trace their ancestry to the Gudabanud.
