This Conservation Estate remains sacred to the Traditional Owners of Ipswich.
Some of the Cultural Landscapes within this estate include White Rock, the caves and outcrop overhangs. These sacred sites are very important to the Traditional Owners as they provide a link between Country and personal identity and allow the passing on of cultural knowledge.

As per Cultural Protocol the Traditional Owners have requested no one climbs White Rock.

Acknowledgement of Country
Ipswich City Council respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners as custodians of the land and waters with which we share.
We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging, as the Keepers of traditions, customs, cultures and stories of proud peoples.
