First Peoples have lived on this land since the beginning. Where Caring for Country was active and a way of life, taking only what could be taken while enabling the land to stay sustained. Through ceremony and culture giving back love and respect. First Peoples live according to the laws and customs of the land and sea and this has been continued from ancestors through countless generations. As the longest continuous culture in the world, First Peoples in what is currently called ‘Australia’ have sophisticated cultures that vary between different Indigenous groups.
First Peoples continue to live here and care for Country, People and Culture. We live, learn, work and play on this sacred ground and it's our responsibility to learn and care for our Mother Earth as the First Peoples do. As past and future emerge into the now, our cultural history and the voices of the people still sings in the wind.
A closer glance reveals the often-untold story of the many peoples connected with this place. History of the local First Peoples became fractured when this continent was colonised, and although it is a past, we cannot forget. In learning this history and treasuring the fragments, a clearer vision can be formed to create a more harmonious, caring future.
