Wunambal Gaambera People
We, the Wunambal Gaambera people are happy and proud to welcome visitors to our Uunguu – our living home. We are saltwater and freshwater people. Our ancestors have travelled this country for many many years. We continue the tradition of our old people looking after our country.
In 2011, Australian law recognised our unbroken connection to our Country and Lalai, calling us Wanjina Wunggurr (Uunguu) common law native title-holders, but we call ourselves Wunambal Gaambera people. If our country is healthy we are healthy.
Wunambal Gaambera (Uunguu) people, Wororra (Dambimangari) people and Ngarinyin (Willinggin) people share common Wanjina Wunggurr ancestors. Together we make up the Wanjina Wunggurr Community, with each group managing its own Country.

Wunambal Gaambera Country is the only place in the world where we can make our life. We need to make livelihoods for ourselves and provide opportunities for our children and future generations. We need to teach our law and culture to our young people and take them back to Country.
