Woollahra Cottage


Woollahra Cottage recognises and acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of Australia; with unique cultures, languages and spiritual relationships with the Land and seas.

Woollahra Cottage acknowledges the profound injustice perpetrated against Australias First People since colonisation.


We are strongly committed to improving the lives of all Australians now and in the future; by demonstrating leadership in reconciliation through respectful collaboration and partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


We aim to promote and raise awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history amongst children, families and the wider community by respectfully embedding them in Woollahra Cottage.

Our vision for the future is that there will be a positive change; that all Australians embrace and appreciate the Elders past, present and future for the wisdom and knowledge they hold and share.

Woollahra Cottage is contributing to an Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, children and families cultural identities are respected, and that they feel comfortable in our service and the children are recognised and nurtured as the creators, thinkers and doers of today and tomorrow.

Australians will know we are truly reconciled when the past is no longer a barrier to forming relationships of friendship and trust.

Working in solidarity can be very powerful - we must all play an active part in working towards this vision.
