Lyndon Davis | The Lore of the Land (detail) | 2018), acrylic on canvas | 91 x 122cm. Sunshine Coast Art Collection.

Caloundra Regional Gallery acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.

We recognise that these have always been places of cultural, spiritual, social and economic significance. The Traditional Custodians’ unique values, and ancient and enduring cultures, deepen and enrich the life of our community.

We wish to pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging, and acknowledge the important role First Nations people continue to play within the Sunshine Coast community.

Welcome to Country performed by Gubbi Gubbi traditional custodian, Lyndon Davis.

Filmed for the Caloundra Regional Gallery exhibition: First Nations Artwork in July 2020.
