Dhanggati Elders reveal bridge name proposal in song
COUNCIL business took a back seat for a while at Tuesday’s monthly meeting and the chamber filled with song as an Aboriginal delegation’s members made their case for the official naming of the Macleay Floodplain bridge. Members of the Dhangatti Language Group came up with the name “Yapang gurraarbang gayandugayigu” during a discussion at their TAFE class. It means “Very long track to the other side”. They hope the Aboriginal name and its English translation will be adopted together as the official name for what will be the longest bridge in the southern hemisphere.
