Welcome to Country

Lorne FOPA invites everyone to share in a traditional Welcome to Country on Gadubanud land.

This Welcome and smoking ceremony cleanses the Festival site; acknowledges and pays respects to the traditional custodians the Kirrae Wurrung/Gundidjmara family group, their ancestral spirits, their children and the lore of their land.  

It is also your invitation to join the welcome ceremony, as we officially open the FOPA hub in the heart of Lorne.
