“Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action. … Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. Recognizing cultural perspectives and demonstrating awareness through looking after and caring for country sends a strong message.

“Throughout Australia Aboriginal people have an intimate knowledge of local terrains.
“For Aboriginal people land is a story place. It holds the stories of human survival across the generations.
“Land shapes people, just as people shape their countries. Australia is interwoven with the tracks of the dreaming/song lines.”
