Explore our site to learn more about the Currie Country from one of the largest Traditional Owner Families within the Aboriginal Yugembeh Bundjalaung nations of South East QLD, + Far North NSW.
We are the descendants of James + Ellen Currie. Learn about our history, our connections to country + Aboriginal knowledge systems which exist in the Tweed Coast as you connect to the country we call 'Currie Country'. If you have questions or would like to collaborate feel free to get in touch.
Currie Country Boundaries
Most Indigenous nations have natural topographical boundaries. Currie Country is bounded by the Logan River (QLD) to the North, the Brunswick 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'.
