Currie Country Boundaries
Most Indigenous nations have natural topographical boundaries. Currie Country is bounded by the Logan River (QLD) to the North, the Tweed River (NSW) in the South + West to the Albert River (QLD).
These rivers flow North to South via the Rous River. The connection of these waterways is Currie Country. Jame's + Ellen's eight surviving children were all born 'on country'.
We respectfully call these Elders the 'Solum Eight'.
