Our traditional estate – Quandamooka, the waters and islands of Central and Southern Moreton Bay and the coastal land and streams between the Brisbane to Logan Rivers, gave life to us in a time beyond memory.
The Quandamooka Peoples have lived on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) for a very long time. Scientists say at least 25 000 years, however we say longer.
There are three clans that comprise the Peoples of the Quandamooka. They are the Nughi of Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) and the Nunukul and Gorenpul of Minjerribah.
We are the Quandamooka People. We are the people of the sand and the water.
The coastal Quandamooka Country is between 10 and 30 minutes of vehicle travel time from the Brisbane CBD and international airport. The islands like Minjerribah can be reached in just over an hour travel time from the city or airport, but it feels like a world away.
The rich sub-tropical coastal lands and islands on Brisbane’s doorstep offer volcanic headlands, high cliffs, beautiful gorges, pristine white sand beaches and pure turquoise waters.
Buwangan (dolphin) and mibaral (turtle) can be seen all year round and the yalingbila (humpback whales) from June to November. Gula (koala) and garumun (kangaroo) can be seen daily in the wild. The native and migrating bird life is abundant.
Quandamooka people have a deep spiritual connection to this country. Their rich culture that they are excited to share with you.
