We respectfully acknowledge the Gunai Kurnai people as the rightful owners of this land, water and skies. Since time immemorial they have been the keepers of knowledge and guardians of Country. We recognise the inequality in our society and the systemic racism that disadvantages First Nations people, and that we cannot achieve justice for all without restoration of land and governance.
