The Central Coast Conservatorium acknowledges that we operate on the lands of the Darkinyung people. We pay our respect to this land and its people. We acknowledge those ancestors that defended, walked on and managed these lands for many generations and who have left a legacy of strong cultural wisdom and knowledge embedded in these lands today. We acknowledge and recognise all Aboriginal people who have come from other First Nations groups and who have now come to call this country their home. We acknowledge the Elders past, present and emerging who are the knowledge holders, teachers and pioneers.
