Giinagay

Giinagay G'day

Welcome to Gumbaynggirr Country

Gumbaynggirr language was put in the land by Yuludarla, the Gumbaynggirr ancestral being, so when you say Giinagay it’s the land welcoming you.

Nambucca Valley is the land of the Gumbaynggirr people who have occupied the Mid North Coast from Nambucca to the Clarence River and west to the Great Dividing Range since the Yuludarla or the Dreaming.

Baga Baga is the clan around Nambucca, the word comes from the giant Ngambaa man who got speared and when he fell his body made an imprint in the land and his knee made bend in the river. The name Nambucca comes from the combination of the giant Ngambaa man and the Baga-Baga people.

What a glorious start to the weekend! Have a good one everyone, as usual we will be doing stuff around the house and yard, a load of soil tomorrow and re-potting plants, transplanting some seedlings to pre-pepared beds and planting some new seeds.
Bunnings was on the cards but with 4 covid cases in Coffs Harbour I'm a little hesitant 🤔
Also we need to restock our car with camping stuff for the long weekend, can't wait to get away!
Love u all! X
