Welcome to Country

Welcome to Country

The Welcome to Country ceremony is an acknowledgment and recognition of the rights of Noongar people.

The act of getting a representative who has traditional local links to a particular place, area or region, is an acknowledgment of respect for traditional owners. It is respect for people, respect for rights and a respect for country.

The land, waterways and cultural significant sites are still very important to Noongar people.

It is an acknowledgment of the past and provide a safe passage for visitors and a mark of respect.
