ANSTO thanks the Dharawal People for gifting the name nandin, meaning look ahead in Dharawal language, to this Centre.

The land where nandin is located, has histories, custodians and stories spanning tens of thousands of years that extend to this day. We celebrate and acknowledge the Traditional Owners and custodians of this land, the Dharawal people; we pay our respects to their elders, past and present, and embrace their continuing connections to this land. ANSTO is committed to reconciling the past while working together in pursuit of progress using Western scientific advances and traditional Aboriginal cultural knowledge to create a better future for all.
