The Barwon South West Regional Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committee (RAJAC) acknowledges the traditional owners within the region and pays respects to elders both past and present.

With an Aboriginal population of 4,475, the Barwon South West region accounts for approximately 9% of Victoria’s total Aboriginal population. 

A RAJAC Executive Officer and Local Aboriginal Justice Action Committee (LAJAC) Project Officer work across the region’s nine Local Government Areas: Colac-Otway, Corangamite, Glenelg, Greater Geelong, Moyne, Queenscliff, Southern Grampians, Surf Coast and Warrnambool.  LAJACs are established in the Warrnambool, Geelong and Glenelg areas.   

There are three prisons located in the Barwon South West region: Barwon Prison, Marngoneet Correctional Centre and Karreenga Correctional Centre. A full suite of justice services are offered from the Warrnambool Justice Service Centre and Geelong Regional Office.
