First Nations Partnerships

The Coorong is of enormous cultural significance to its First Nations. As a consequence, Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin has a dedicated process being undertaken through the Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal Corporation and Burrandies Aboriginal Corporation to work in partnership with the First Nations of the area.

The Coorong Partnership

In addition to the broader community, the Coorong Partnership is a ministerially appointed community reference group specifically tasked with providing advice to initiatives under Project Coorong, including Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin.
