I would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which I work; the Wadi Wadi people of Dharawal Country and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters, culture, and community.

I’d like to pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. May I also pay respect to their ongoing cultural and spiritual connection embedded forever throughout Australia.
