Jabu Birriny (land and sea)

Jabu Birriny

Jabu Birriny (land and sea), pronounced jah-boo bir-rin-ee, celebrates the unique environment of Yarrabah and its ongoing importance to culture and people.

Located on the shore of Cape Grafton in Far North Queensland, Yarrabah is a dynamic Aboriginal community surrounded by tropical native bushland and mountain ranges united by sandy coastlines and coral reefs.

Jabu Birriny shares stories rich in lineal and recent histories through vibrant prints, intricately woven vessels and textured ceramics that collectively embody the land and sea.

Want to delve deeper? Come along to the artist workshop on 21 October.

The exhibition has been co-curated with Yarrabah Arts and Cultural Precinct, a branch of the Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council.
