ANSTO acknowledges the traditional owners of the Lucas Heights campus, the Dharawal people, and the traditional owners of the land on which the Clayton campus now stands, the people of the Kulin Nations.
ANSTO respects the unique cultural significance of the local environment in which it operates in the past, today and into the future. In recognition of this connection, ANSTO is enhancing activities to connect with the local and broader Australian Indigenous communities. This includes the recent commissioning of a Dharawal mural to capture the significance of Australian Indigenous cultural heritage in the Lucas Heights area.
A representative working group from across the organisation has been formed to explore and progress initiatives relating to engagement, including an Indigenous Employment Strategy.
