History

The land on which St Vincent’s Care Services Werribee is situated is the traditional home of the Kulin Nation people. The name Werribee means backbone or spine in the language of the people of the Kulin Nation. This was the name they gave to the river and valley whose shape in the landscape looked like a backbone. For over 30,000 years the Wathaurang, Boon Wurrung and Wurenjeri people would meet on the banks of the Werribee River Valley. In 1835, John Batman explored the land from Geelong to Melbourne. The treaty John Batman signed was in exchange for an annual payment of blankets, knives, mirrors, and such things. It was significant in that it documented the only time European settlers negotiated their presence and occupation of Aboriginal lands. 

Members of John Batman’s Port Phillip Association leased pasture land around Werribee from the 1830s. A rural township began in the 1850s on the main road from Melbourne to Geelong. The township — first called Wyndham and then later Werribee — grew rapidly, assisted by the construction of the Melbourne to Geelong railway line in 1857. The population of Werribee, and the surrounding Wyndham City Council local government area, has been increasing rapidly since the 1950s. It is one of Melbourne’s fastest growing municipalities, with the area’s population in 2016 predicted to nearly double by 2036.
