Jabalbina Educational Tour

Jabalbina is the registered Native Title Body Corporate, Land Trust and Cultural Heritage Body for Eastern Kuku Yalanji Bama.  This cooperative ensures that the landscape of Kuku Yalanji Bubu (lands) is both environmentally and culturally secure.  Jabalbina works closely with its Kuku Yalanji Traditional Owners to ensure the maintenance of Kuku Yalanji Bama culture, supporting economic and community development.  Jabalbina recently reviewed its strategic plan and has developing Enterprises and Native Title and Tenure Resolution Programs to support development.

The air conditioned coach will take you along the scenic coastline up to Mossman.  Upon arrival at the Mossman Jabalbina Ranger Base you will be Welcomed to Country followed by a short tour.  An experienced ranger will introduce you to Jabalbina and discuss the opportunities and challenges of development on Yalanji Country with morning coffee and/ or tea.  A bus tour of the Mossman Daintree region will offer you an opportunity to view some of the work that has been completed by Jabalbina rangers. The Enterprise and Native Title and Tenure Resolution programs will be discussed including the challenges of development on Aboriginal Freehold Land.

This tour is very interactive and there will be many opportunities to ask questions and discuss the work of the rangers and the challenges of development.
