Promoting the development of rural Australia

SPERA acknowledges that the land we call Australia has – for tens of thousands of years – been the spiritual and physical home of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, who continue to carry this unbroken cultural connection into the 21st century. We pay our respects to the ancestors and elders past, present and emerging.
