Muurrbay Aboriginal Language and Culture Co-operative

Darruyay yilaaming maam-weba Muurrbay-gundi! Ngawaadu ngiyaanya, yuludarla wajaarr gani. Ngawaadu jalaarla ngiyambala muugay waarruwaygam; ngiyaanya balmuunambay. Welcome to the Muurrbay website! Our language comes from our country. Language gives us our identity and makes us strong. Muurrbay is a leading regional language centre that provides strategic support to revitalise the languages of seven Aboriginal communities of central to north coast NSW. We work closely with Elders and local language, culture and educational organisations to conduct research, publish accessible grammar–dictionaries and develop engaging educational courses and resources. Muurrbay gratefully acknowledges funding from the Australian Government’s Indigenous Languages Support Program of the Ministry for the Arts, Attorney-General’s Department via its Indigenous Languages Support (ILS) program. Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this website may contain images and voices of people who have passed away.
