First Nations Country/ Traditional Land names on Warndu Packages

Warndu has added Traditional Country Names as First Nations Country so you can acknowledge the land you live on. 

Last year to mark NAIDOC week Auspost added Traditional Land Names  to postage package - YAY! 

Our mates at Magpie Goose another amazing Indigenous business have been promoting this.  

All packages from Warndu will come from Ngadjuri land. 

How to add / How to find your place name

To acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land your item is being delivered on, you can include those place names in the address field. To find Traditional Place names, check AIATSIS, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land Councils, or Cultural Centres in your local area. When sending items you can include a Traditional Place name in either the address you’re sending from, or in the recipient’s address.

 

How do I find out what traditional Country I am on?

A quick google / a little bit of research can help you find out the Country you're on, if you don't know already! The AIATSIS map is always a great resource, your local council should hopefully have information, and there's usually a local Aboriginal corporation that can help you out with more context.

Remember that due to the pervasive nature of colonisation in Australia, some areas might be disputed or traditional ownership uncertain. You're welcome to put a few traditional names down - better to acknowledge more than acknowledge none!
