The birth  index has Dorothy's mother as May PHIPPS.  Possibly a transcription error as I see she married in 1901 as Mary Jane PHIPPS...

and death with some inaccurate information....

OSBORNE Mary Jane
Father George Summers Phipps   Mother Annie Hutchinson ELLIOTT
At South Melbourne  57 years  1934  Reg#4930

Her parents marriage -

PHIPPS George  born Kyneton
ELLIOTT Johanna born Ballarat
1878  Reg# 2362

and two deaths - possibly Johanna's husband and father in law. Johanna married Arthur HUTCHINSON in 1883.

PHIPPS George Sommers
Father George Sommers  Mother Mary Ann BURNS
27 years  Birthplace unknown  1880  Reg#4649

PHIPPS George Somers
Father George Somers  Mother not recorded
65 years at Trentham  1888  Reg#12275

There are three births registered to George [Somers] PHIPPS and Mary Ann BURNS.
Frances Catherine 1859 Kyneton, Alice 1862 Kyneton and Selina 1864 Trentham.

From whom do you think your gggrandmother has gained her Maori ancestry?  If it is her birth father, then you may have difficulty tracing him as he is not named on the birth index.

I am doing a project for northern NSW forming an Index of Aboriginal people mainly in the 1800s but that is out of your area. As far as victoria goes, the following website may help for Aboriginal records.  This gentleman is doing a similar self funded project and is adding to it all the time.
