We pay respect to the Traditional Custodians of the land we now call New South Wales and acknowledge their enduring culture and continued connection to Country. We extend our respect to Elders, past and present, and acknowledge future generations of Aboriginal people. We acknowledge visitors from across Australia and around the world are made welcome on Aboriginal lands by the Traditional Custodians of NSW. We acknowledge the significant contribution made by Aboriginal people to the development and promotion of the visitor economy.
