Australia’s First Peoples

Northern Cemeteries acknowledges the unique status of Australia’s First Peoples as the original people of this land. We recognise their cultures, histories and ongoing relationship and obligations to the land and waterways.

Acknowledgment of Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, Northern Cemeteries acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land, the Darug People. The spirit of the Darug can be found across the region and we can honour the memory of their ancestors.

These traditional homelands are ancient and sacred to the Darug who have a deep sense of belonging, both traditional and contemporary, because they are part of the world’s oldest surviving, continuous living culture on the planet.
