Acknowledgement of Country
We honour and pay our respects to the Giabal, Jarowair and West Wakka Wakka peoples, the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways of the Groom electorate.
We also acknowledge and celebrate the cultural diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who come to Groom from the many nations across Australia to live, work or study.
We recognise the significance of our shared history, acknowledging the discriminatory and oppressive injustices of the past.
In the spirit of reconciliation, we are committed to further strengthening the relationships between First Nations and non-First Nations people, aiming for a greater understanding and awareness of the continued connections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to land, sea and community.
