PAYING OUR RESPECTS

Australia has seen more than its fair share of disaster and trauma. We are a land prone to natural disasters; we have a long and proud military history; we have suffered acts of mass violence. We acknowledge the pain and suffering, but also the courage and resilience, of the Indigenous and new Australians affected by these events.
