Before works commenced on the recently awarded Narre Warren - Cranbourne Road Upgrade project in Victoria, our team participated in a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony to cleanse the site.
The ceremonies were led by Uncle Mik, an Elder from the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation. Uncle Mik shared stories of Country, the First Nations People in the area and the local environment and wildlife. The ceremony and stories resonated strongly with our teams, who will work closely and respectfully with the local community and environment.
Celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture has become a feature on all our Australian projects, along with many other initiatives detailed in our Reconcilation Action Plan.
