Reconciliation Action Plan

Artist Riki Salam's piece for the NRMA's RAP: Keep Country Moving

The NRMA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land and waterways on which our organisation operates. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future.

For 100 years, the NRMA has helped Australians on their journeys, and we strive to keep our communities moving together. We are people moving people.

In July 2019, we launched our second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), to signify our continued dedication in providing meaningful and sustainable outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.

As the NRMA is transforming from a roadside assistance company into a transport and tourism organisation, we have made sure our second RAP is anchored in our motoring heritage as well as incorporated into our newly acquired businesses in the transport and tourism sector.

Our Stretch RAP maintains our focus on fostering education and employment pathways as well as economic prosperity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

We seek to foster the rich cultural heritage and protocols of First Nations peoples, and partner with organisations that enable opportunities for skills training and employment in local communities.

We purposefully build a culture that is richly diverse, where everyone is included, where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential and to feel they truly belong. We’re committed to opening doors for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent in our expanded travel and tourism businesses through the creation of additional pathways to employment. 

In the Motoring and Membership business we recently negotiated the inclusion of an Acknowledgement of Country to our Patrol Enterprise Agreement.

We also remain focused on challenging ourselves to create and develop sustainable commercial opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, like our partnership with the national not-for-profit Welcome to Country to help create awareness among NRMA Members about Australia’s First Nations peoples, their history and culture.

We understand our reconciliation journey still has a long way to go and we look forward to building stronger relationships with Traditional Owners, organisations and community members as we strive towards our shared vision.
