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.


There is a need to balance the demands of growth and change with the needs of our environment and community. Our highly skilled and educated community live here for a special reason: the opportunity to live and work close to the pristine waterways and native bushland that are central to our quality of traditional life.

Protecting our precious environment is one of our main priorities and is an integral part of our vision.
