Welcome to Country*


In Australia it is customary and respectful to honor the first nations people, past, present and future. Typically, this is done when meeting or in this case for our journey originating from Adelaide, South Australia.


Welcome to Kaurna Country

(Kaurna = Red Kangaroo)


Ninna Marni  (A Kaurna word for “hello, how are you?”)


I would like to Acknowledge that the land we meet on today is the traditional lands for the Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. I also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide, South Australia region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.
