Australia’s First Peoples

Northern Cemeteries acknowledges the unique status of Australia’s First Peoples as the original people of this land. We recognise their cultures, histories and ongoing relationship and obligations to the land and waterways.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Field of Mars Cemetery acknowledges the traditional custodians of this land, the Darug People. The spirit of the Darug can be found across the region and we honour the memory of their ancestors.

These traditional homelands are ancient and sacred to the Darug who have a deep sense of belonging, both traditional and contemporary, because they are part of the world’s oldest surviving, continuous living culture on the planet.

Always caring for the community in all its diversity
