We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Lardil people of Mornington Island.

We also wish to pay our respect to the historical people from surrounding islands and areas including the Kaiadilt, Yangkal and Gangalidda peoples.

We pay respect to our elders both past and present, and acknowledge the many leaders in the community.


Mornington Shire Council operates across 22 islands within the Wellesley Island Group: one of Australia's most PRISTINE regions
