Avoca Police Reserve


Working Heritage acknowledges that the Avoca Police Reserve played a role in the colonial expansion of Victoria which resulted in the dispossession and alienation of Country from its traditional owners the Dja Dja Wurrung. It is Working Heritage’s intent to confront this reality and make genuine steps towards reconciliation.
