    Aboriginal communities across Australia have boundaries that are defined by mountain ranges and waterways.

    Traditionally, to cross these boundaries or enter community country you needed permission from the neighbouring community.

    When this permission was granted the ceremony now called Welcome to Country took place.

    Each community had its own way of welcoming to country, and they still do today.
