Wellama means to come back in the Sydney Aboriginal language. This 10 minute audio visual artwork, by Alison Page and Nik Lachajczak, is a celebration of ritual, ceremony and story practised on Country since time immemorial.

The work is a contemporary re-imagining of Welcome to Country, a customary greeting that our First Peoples extend to visitors, who in turn agree to respect the traditional laws and culture of Country.

Wellama welcomes visitors to Gadigal Country and pays respects to the Traditional Custodians of this land.

Free to view and open to the public at the entrance to the Cutaway in Barangaroo Reserve.

Make a day of it and join an Aboriginal Cultural Tour of Barangaroo Reserve, Sydney's newest harbourside gardens with over 75,000 native Australian plants and a spectacular view to the iconic Harbour Bridge.
