Geburrh Origins

geburrh-logo-repeat-mosaic1geburrh-logo-origin-brad-welsh‘Geburrh’ or ‘Geboor’ is the traditional name for Mount Macedon, in the Aboriginal Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people.

Like Uluru in the Northern Territory, also known as Ayers Rock, the name Geburrh was chosen to pay tribute and respect towards the traditional land owners where the existing Woodend Community Centre site looks towards Mount Macedon. It’s a reflection of the rich cultural heritage of Woodend as a village and the original people and history that makes Woodend what it is today.

Designed by Brad Welsh of Büro of Ideas, the Geburrh logo represents the cultural heart of Woodend, as a meeting place that encourages and supports new ideas, sharing and community.

In Brad’s own words:

“The most wonderful thing about the new Geburrh Centre is the place itself. The amazing new buildings and resources to the community. The spaces that have been so beautifully designed and considered – and purposefully placed on site. All of the creative thinking and dreaming and designing culminates in a precinct that lives and breathes – and acts as an important conduit for healthy, vibrant, lively community activity and engagement. The Geburrh insignia is a hand-drawn symbolic representation of the spaces that make up the Geburrh Centre from plan view. There is an element through the middle that connects and suggests movement between the spaces.”
