An "Acknowledgement of Country" is a way that all people can show respect for Aboriginal cultures and heritage and the ongoing relationship the traditional custodians have with the land. 

At the commencement of a meeting or function, a chair or speaker begins by acknowledging that the meeting is taking place in the country of the traditional custodians. Where the name of the traditional custodians is known, it is specifically used. Where it is not known, a general acknowledgement is given.  

I would like to Acknowledge the Awabakal people who are the traditional custodians of this land. I would also like to pay respect to Elders both past and present of the Awabakal nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.
