Acknowledgement of Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, and community. I pay my respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.

My office is, I believe, on the land of the Darramurragal Clan.
