Welcome to the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People.
We are part of this land and the land is part of us.
This is where we come from.

Welcome to Country.
Respected Elder Aunty Joy Murphy welcomes us to Country with a Wurundjeri Wominjeka (welcome) and beautifully, yet simply, explains the concept of welcoming ceremonies and their significance to Aboriginal communities across Australia.
Warm and vibrant illustrations by Indigenous artist Lisa Kennedy, a descendant of the Trawlwoolway People, make this a visually stunning story.
Welcome to Country needs to be heard by every child (and adult!) so that all Australians can understand and respect the cultural importance of a welcome to country.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
