Why is it significant?
The Dandenong Police Paddocks is a site of state and national significance as the location of the Central Station of the Westernport Aboriginal Protectorate Station and the Native Police Corps Headquarters in the 1837-1853 period. From 1853 to 1931 it was the site of the Victoria Police Stud Depot. The Police Paddocks site has considerable significance for its associations with pre and post-contact Aboriginal heritage. The area was originally part of the clan territory of the Wurundjeri and on the border of the country of the Bunurong tribe. (AHC criteria A4, B2, D2 and H1)
