Acknowledgment of Country

We would like to acknowledge the Ngunnawal people and Ngunnawal Country. The ACT Government acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as Traditional Custodians of the ACT who have a strong connection to culture and Country for thousands of years including the Birragai Rock Shelter which is an old camp site dated back as far as 25,000 years ago. Ngunnawal Country is the northern end of the Australian Alps where many ceremonies were conducted and is part of the Murray Darling Basin that is a traditional pathway to neighbouring Aboriginal Nations.

We also pay our respects to other Aboriginal Nations who have cultural connections to the ACT region and surrounds including the Wolgalu, Ngarigu, Gundungurra, Ngambri and Yuin.
