In the spirit of reconciliation, Cave Hill Creek acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we gather and their connections to land, waterways and community. We recognise and pay respect to Djab Wurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung and Wathourong peoples and honour the history, culture and spirituality of their Elders and Ancestors. For thousands of years these peoples met nearby on the banks of the Fiery Creek to socialize and trade, a tradition we are privileged to continue at Cave Hill Creek today.
We would also like to pay our respect to the community, past and present, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. We recognise their connection to Country, and the significant role they have played in caring for and maintaining these lands over thousands of years. Their strength, wisdom and history will be forever imbued in the spirit of Cave Hill Creek.
