The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing (ORSR) is committed to reconciliation, and acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land, sea and waterways on which we live, work and play. ORSR also acknowledges the immense contribution to sport made by First Nations peoples and endeavours to promote their ongoing achievements and involvement within sport while working towards a more just and equitable society for all.

To support this commitment, ORSR is proud to share with you, our people and partners, our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

This document was curated by the RAP Working Group following consultation with First Nations advisors Kellie Graves (Tjindu Foundation General Manager) and Tim Larkin (Larkin Consulting), and was endorsed by ORSR Chief Executive Kylie Taylor and Reconciliation Australia. It reflects the start of our formal journey towards reconciliation through actions that are achievable and meaningful. It embodies our workplace, culture and passion for sport and active recreation in conjunction with First Nations peoples.

The artwork and piece created for the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing (ORSR) is representative of the people, community, movement, and active lives that ORSR inspires and engages with. The creative illustrates the infusion of Reconciliation throughout the organisation and its influence into community and understanding that both health and culture are present in both sporting and life cycles.

Inspired by this piece, Pat Caruso, Eastern Arrernte artist painted a hand carved boomerang (provided by Jack Buckskin, Kuma Kaaru) bringing the design to life, making it a tangible piece, a trophy that can be held and explored.
