List of Traditional Place names

We are building a list of Traditional Place names across NSW – starting with some of our corporate offices. We hope you find this list useful for Acknowledgements of Country and addressing letters.

We have consulted with each office in identifying the relevant Aboriginal Country. However we of course take responsibility for any errors, and apologise for any hurt or offence that may cause. If you think there has been a mistake please contact us directly at rap@det.nsw.edu.au
