South Australia

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge and respect the Traditional Custodians whose ancestral lands we live and work upon and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge and respect the deep spiritual connection and the relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to Country.

We also pay our respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their nations in South Australia, as well as those across Australia.

Dad and I travelled from Adelaide along the Great Ocean Road heading to Sydney via Victoria.  Australia is a country of many different landscapes and completely different from wehre I grew up in North Queensland.  A couple of places worth a stop are Robe and Warrnambool.


First Nations food experiences in South Australia

There are a few visual cues that mark the beginning of summer in Australia. Jacarandas blossoming on suburban streets. Cricket replacing footy on local ovals. Backpackers sunburning on crowded beaches. And big screens popping up in parks and on rooftops around the country, preparing for another summer of outdoor cinema. Because what better way to spend a balmy evening than under the stars watching your favourite flick?


Stand Up for the Murray.  South Australia is standing up for the Murray, and demanding that the Murray-Darling Basin Plan is delivered in full, on time.  While South Australia has committed time and money to manage the river well, other states have not matched our commitment, nor have they embraced the spirit of the agreement.

Lake Eyre, Kati Thanda National Park  Is the home of the Arabunna people and a very dramatic natural cycles of floods, drought and everything in between.  Days are measured by the length of shadows, or when the afternoon clouds roll in, months are measured by the level of salt crust on the surface of the lake; and years are measured by the rise and fall of waters, the sweep through ancient river systems, transforming the desert and bringing new life.
