Welcome to Country
Traditional Owners the Darumbal people welcome you to this land and sea country:
MAYIMBAGU DARUMBAL NUNTHI (WELCOME TO DARUMBAL COUNTRY)
Because of all the water that lies within this land, many Darumbal people regard it as Munda-Gadda (Rainbow Serpent) or, Munda-Gatta country. The Munda-Gadda (Moon-da-Ga-da) is a Creation Spirit that created all the water in the land, therefore, it is the keeper of all life because without water, everything living, dies. Yugu (water lily) is a plant that represents the four main clans of the Darumbal Nation. These clans are the Kuinmabara (Koo-in-ma-bra), Nindyabul (Nin-dja-bul), Warrabul (Wadda-bul) and Tarumbul (Ta-room-bul). You are in the area of country known as Nindyabul.
The Munda-Gadda, Yugu, and the Barraru (green tree frog) are all culturally related. The Yugu (yoo-goo) and the Barraru (budaroo) are just two of the many bigarndy (big-arndj) (totems) of the Darumbal people.
To our visitors and those that live here, please look after this land that we all belong to, and leave only your footprints behind.
