The participation, advice and experience of Indigenous Elders is seen as highly important within all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
In Toowoomba the local community Elders are members of the the Toowoomba Council of Elders. The Toowoomba Council of Elders Aboriginal Corporation regularly meet to discuss and address issues relevant to the local Indigenous community. The Centre for Australian Indigenous Knowledges has shown support for the Toowoomba Council of Elders and the Indigenous community by providing the Council with access to facilities at the Centre.
