Quandamooka CountryThe Quandamooka people, ‘people of the bay’, refer to North Stradbroke Island as Minjerribah. The Quandamooka people have been caring for Minjerribah since time immemorial and as such the island is rich in traditional culture. Archaeological sites show evidence of countless generations of Quandamooka people using the island and the rich surrounding waters for food, work and recreation. Their connection to the land, sea and country is still as strong today.
Blue Lake is an area of special cultural significance for the Quandamooka people who call the lake Karboora, meaning deep silent pool’. Other places of cultural significance include Eighteen Mile Swamp, midden and bora ring sites and Moongalba (Myora) Mission and springs.
Please respect the culture and places of Minjerribah - enjoy the experience and leave only footprints.
