Acknowledgement of Country

We are working to create a cooler, greener, wilder and climate-resilient Adelaide that celebrates our unique culture.

We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the First Peoples and Nations of the lands and waters we live and work upon and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge and respect the deep spiritual connection and the relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to Country.

We work in partnership with the First Peoples of South Australia and supports their Nations to take a leading role in caring for their Country.
