The Gubbi Gubbi people often had visitors at their camps. When there was no common oral language the Aboriginal people shared their news by writing it down. This ancient Aboriginal story through artwork reads from top left through to lower right.
Thanks to The University of Queensland School of Languages and Cultures, together with Bulu Yabun are audio recording/ taping Gubbi Gubbi language words. Starting in January 2018, watch this space for more info on available USB stick for purchase of the audio recording. These resources will support Gubbi Gubbi language for the fantastic books – Gubbi Gubbi Animal Friends and Gubbi Gubbi Bush Tucker Girl.
