Acknowledgement of Country
Central Highlands Rural Health respectfully acknowledges that our organisation is on Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country, whose ancestors and their descendants are the traditional owners of this Country.
We acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
We pay our respects to leaders and Elders past, present and emerging for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and the hopes of the Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Peoples.
We express our gratitude for the sharing of the land, our sorrow for the personal, spiritual and cultural costs of that sharing and our hope that we may walk forward together in harmony and in the spirit of healing.
