We acknowledge history starts with the stories, connection and language of the Wadawurrung People, The Traditional Owners of the land, water, and sky. We pay our respects to their Elders of the Past, Present, and those Emerging.

Queenscliffe is part of Wadawurrung Country, a small part of land and mouth waters of the Bass Strait that’s connected to the larger Country of Wadawurrung.
We acknowledge Wadawurrung People and the spiritual connection they share with the lands.
