JIngeri.. Hello..

Yugambeh+Chior-6993.jpg

Who are the yugambeh people?

The Yugambeh people are the traditional custodians of the land located in south-east Queensland and north-east New South Wales, now within the Logan CityGold CoastScenic Rim, and Tweed City regions.whose ancestors all spoke one or more dialects of the Yugambeh Language


What do we do?

The Yugambeh Museum, Language and Heritage Research Centre aims to record and promote the traditional knowledge of our region, especially the Yugambeh language which was spoken throughout South East Queensland.
 

We work with and bring the community together through many initiatives centred around cultural and educational exchange, so that future generations have the opportunity to embrace our language, hear our stories and truly connect with their Indigenous legacy as a relevant part of their today and tomorrow.
 

Beyond our home of the Gold Coast and Scenic Rim, we also work as 'one mob' and collaborate with other communities throughout the State, to assist with the preservation and revitalisation of their own languages and traditions to ensure their ongoing inclusion in today's cultural landscape.
