Acknowledging Traditional Owners
The Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board acknowledges and respects the traditional custodians of the Murraylands and Riverland region, and we also pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
We acknowledge and respect the deep spiritual attachment and the relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to country.
We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people visiting the Murraylands and Riverland region from other areas of South Australia or Australia.
