For tens of thousands of years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have cared for country.

In this place, the peoples of the Kulin nation sustained healthy communities and wisely managed the resources of these lands by the bay.

We pay respect to the Elders, past and present, and welcome the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as we shape a future in which all thrive.
