Killalea State Park would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, past present and future and further build in depth relationships with the local Aboriginal community to enhance the beauty of this natural treasure.

The Illawarra region was first occupied by the Elouera, Korewal and Jerrungarugh tribes who lived in the Dharawal Nation and spoke the Dharawal language.

Killalea State Park was very important to the Aboriginal people as there was abundant food supply and various plants used for both medicinal and food purposes. There are large midden areas within the park and areas that are culturally significant to both Aboriginal men and women.
