    The Wotjobaluk People today are descended from a number of closely related Local Groups or Sub-tribes which inhabited Central-Western Victoria for many thousands of years. During the European Invasion, many of the surviving remnants of those Groups were forced onto a Christian Mission Station, called Ebenezer, where they eventually united and called themselves 'Wotjobaluk', which is a general term for 'All the People'.
