BEFORE THERE WERE GOLD DIGGERS: WE RUN ON DJA DJA WURRUNG COUNTRY
Goldrush is kindly hosted on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung people. As organisers and participants we like to acknowledge that our event is occurring on Dja Dja Wurrung Country. Elders of the Dja Dja Wurrung community and their forebears are the traditional owners of this land and have been custodians for many centuries and have performed age old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. We note that the Dja Dja Wurrung gathered and managed this place for up to the last 60,000 years. We acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
