Indigenous Languages

Yugambeh-speaking people are the traditional custodians of the land located in southeast Queensland and northeast New South Wales, now within the Logan City, Gold Coast, Scenic Rim, and Tweed City regions whose ancestors all spoke one or more dialects of the Yugambeh Language.

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