The Aboriginal inspired artwork on our label depicts the myth of the Rainbow Serpent, a powerful symbol of both the creative and destructive power of nature. It is seen as the inhabitant of permanent waterholes such as the river and holds all control over life's most precious resource, water.
We respect and honour the Ngawait people whose country we live and work on.
We also pay respect to all our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future.
We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on this land and commit to building a brighter future together.
