The Kombumerri- Aboriginal people of the Gold Coast
The Kombumerri- Aboriginal people of the Gold Coast
The Kombumerri- Aboriginal people of the Gold Coast is a new Queensland publication which presents recent history from the view of the invaded rather than the invaders.

Written by Rory O'Connor, the book offers a well researched history of the locality, and highlights the ongoing work of the Kombumerri people in retrieving and maintaining both their language and culture. Stories from the past, interviews with the present day descendants and spectacular full colour photographs contribute to a lively, easy-read presentation.
As one of eight clan groups within the Yugambeh language region, the Kombumerri live in the Gold Coast area in South East Queensland, their lands extending from the Coomera River in the North, to the Tweed River on the New South Wales border.

The book contains a map of the clan groupings within the Yugambeh language region as well as numerous historical and recent photographs of the people and the country.

Copies can be obtained from Yugambeh Museum.
