Acknowledgement of Country

We play and learn on the lands of the Awabakal people. For thousands of years they have lived on and cared for this country and waterways.

We respect the Awabakal people and Elders of long ago, today and tomorrow.

We extend that respect to the people of the Wonnarua Nation who also have cultural connections to this area.

May we all walk together now with care and respect upon this land.
