Us at Show Radio would like to pay our respects to the Wann-Gal Peoples of the Eora Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the land we are presenting and meeting on today and for all of the Sydney Royal Easter Show at Sydney Olympic Park. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present; and we extend the respect to all First Nations Peoples who are joining us at the Sydney Royal Easter Show over the next few days. Thank you.
Sydney Olympic Park is situated on the traditional lands of the Wann clan, known as the Wann-gal. The Wann-gal Peoples and their ancestors have lived in the Homebush Bay area for thousands of years. Physical evidence of the usage of the Homebush Bay area by First Nations Peoples have been found as stone artefacts as well as several scarred trees.
