Traditional owners


We acknowledge the Traditional Owners association with the land, sea and waterways on which Brisbane’s inner-city area now stands and pay respect to owners past, present and emerging.

We recognise that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a traditional association with the land, sea and waterways and this traditional association with, and respect for land, sea and waterways sustains Indigenous cultures, languages, spirituality, art, law, and all other aspects of life treasured by, and held sacred to, Indigenous Australian people. We recognise the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people cultures to Australia’s heritage and the dynamic contribution made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to the Brisbane community.
