At Towards Better, we believe in having respect and awareness for aboriginal culture and heritage and the ongoing relationship the traditional owners have with their land. We acknowledge the First Nations people as the original inhabitants of Australia. We recognise, respect and celebrate the cultural distinctions of First Nations people and value their rich and positive contribution to not only Queensland but also to the broader Australian society. We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners (the Wulgurukaba of Gurambilbarra and Yunbenun, Bindal, Gugu Badhun and Nywaigi peoples) and keepers of this land and acknowledge all elders past, present and future.
