Welcome to Country is an important practice in Australia that formally pays respect to the original custodians of the land.

Welcome to Country

A Welcome to Country ceremony – which may be a short spoken statement or something more involved with traditional singing, dancing or smoke ceremonies – is performed by an Aboriginal Elder, Traditional Owner or custodian to welcome visitors to their traditional country. It is an ancient practice dating back many thousands of years.
