We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this Land. We pay respect to Elders past, present and future, and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Ancestors have walked this country, and we acknowledge their special and unique place in our nation’s historical, cultural and linguistic identity. This was and always will be Aboriginal land.
