Acknowledgement to Country (Boodja)

We would like to acknowledge the Whadjuk Noongar people whose land we are standing on and recognise the strength, resilience and capacity of the Noongar people where Curtin University is situated. We pay our respect to their vibrant and endless culture and the leadership of the Elders past, present and future.

This country (boodja), where Curtin is situated, has belonged to the Whadjuk Noongar people for thousands of years and is now a place of learning for all people. Curtin is proud to continue this long tradition.
