We acknowledge the Traditional Owners for the major Australian cities in which we operate, Brisbane (Meanjin): Yuggera / Jagera Country, Sydney (Warrane / Warran): Gadigal Country, Melbourne (Naarm): the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong Boon Wurrung of the Eastern Kulin, and Adelaide (Tarndanya): Kaurna Country.

NAIDOC Week 2024 - Keep the fire burning! Blak, loud and proud

NAIDOC Week | 7-14 July

Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud

NAIDOC 2024 ignites with "Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud." This theme celebrates the enduring strength and rich traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It's a call to action for all Australians to stand together, listen, and learn. By honoring their culture and amplifying their voices, we can build a future that respects and celebrates the oldest living culture in the world.

Whose Country am I on?

Australia's First Peoples have been living on the Australian continent for millennia.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia is made up of many different and distinct groups, each with their own culture, customs, language and laws. They are the world’s oldest surviving culture; cultures that continue to be expressed in dynamic and contemporary ways.

If you would like to find out more information about whose country you are on, this website can help.
