We acknowledge the Wadawurrung people and their ancestors who have been custodians of the Ballarat area for thousands of years performing age old Cultural ceremonies, celebrations and traditions. We also acknowledge the Ballarat Aboriginal community, many of whom were forcibly removed from their families during the Stolen Generations decades, and brought to Ballarat, and we pay our respects to all Elders past, present and emerging.
