Reconciliation Journey

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the lands and waters of Sydney Harbour, including the extraordinary places under our stewardship. They are the Borogeggal, Birrabirrigal, Cammeraygal, Gadigal, Gayamagal, Wallumedegal and Wangal people.

Sydney Harbour is arguably the location of first continuous contact between Aboriginal and Non-Indigenous Australians. As such, the Harbour Trust has a significant responsibility and opportunity to assist in the national journey towards reconciliation.

Our vision for reconciliation is for Australians to recognise and celebrate the cultures and histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, including their strong and enduring ties to the extraordinary places under our stewardship.

In support of this vision, the Harbour Trust adopted an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in June 2018. Endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, this strategic document reflects our commitment to deepening relationships with First Nations People across our organisation, from employment and procurement through to the day-to-day management of our extraordinary places.

The implementation of our RAP is being overseen, monitored and championed by an internal RAP Working Group in close collaboration with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group.
