Djabugay Aboriginal Corporations is made up of three entities which operate on behalf, and for the betterment of the Djabugay speaking people of the Kuranda region. The group, made up of the Djabuganydji, Bulwanydji, Nyagali, Yirrganydji and Gulunydji are proud First Nations people who’s homelands cover a vast estate including the Barron River and Rainforest regions of Far North Queensland. 

The Djabugay peoples’ traditional lands include the Barron Gorge National Park in Queensland’s world heritage listed Wet Tropics. The Barron Gorge National Park is an internationally renowned natural icon, and the Barron Falls (Din Din) an all powerful symbol of the significance of the area to the Traditional Owners. For the Djabugay people, a Native Title determination in 2004 recognised their connection to country as Traditional Owners, and gave an opportunity to have a say on the management of the park. The Corporation recently launched the Djabugay Bulmba Bama Plan which aims to guide the development of a joint management model towards social, cultural and economic benefits for the Djabugay people.

The Corporations provide a range of programs, products and services which are geared to revitalising, maintaining and strengthening the Djabugay peoples’ culture, language and connection to their land, as well as equipping and providing them employment and sustainable economic opportunities. The Corporation currently run a range of programs including:

(1) Djabugay Bulmba Rangers Program

(2) Horticulture & Asset Maintenance Program

(3) Language (Ngirrma) & Culture Program

(4) Djabugay Art Centre

(5) Didjirr Didjirr Family Network

Djabugay Aboriginal Corporations acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
