A Welcome to Country ceremony is an inspiring and respectful protocol that has been part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures for centuries. It’s the right way to welcome visitors to the Country. It is a way of acknowledging the land, the people, and the cultures and showing respect for the Original Owners of the land.

The ceremony must occur at the beginning of a formal event or meeting. It is a way of sharing culture, traditions, and stories with visitors and acknowledging the importance of the land and its people.

All three campuses of the University of Adelaide sit on Kaurna Land. It is appropriate for a Welcome to Country to be performed by Kaurna people with both authority and respect within the community. Our Cultural Advisor, Kaurna Elder Uncle Rod O’Brien, is available for Welcome to Country for The University of Adelaide or external events.
