A 'Welcome to Country' ceremony is a small, formal ceremony where traditional owners, usually elders, welcome people to their land.
It involves a statement or a speech made in Aboriginal dialect, translated for those in attendance, to show respect to the traditional custodians of the land.
At this ceremony, the traditional owners give their blessing to the event taking place on the land. How this ceremony is best conducted may vary according to the location of the event and the traditional practices of the Aboriginal community.
'Welcome to Country' will be a unique and culturally inspiring addition to your event or opening ceremony and is the perfect way to welcome your guests, especially international visitors, to Australia.
