Importance of Country

Posted 13 December 2021

We recognise that Australia is and always was Aboriginal land. To acknowledge that important fact and the significance of Country, we’ve recently made a few changes to recognise traditional place names.

  • IBA website: traditional place names have been added to each location on our Find an office locator page.
  • IBA letterhead: traditional place name of the office location is now found in the address of our letterhead. we are also encouraging our staff to find traditional place names for the recipient address. Australia Post encourage this in their guidelines.
  • Email signature: early next year you will see the addition of traditional place names of IBA offices included in staff email signature blocks.
