'Muurrbay Aboriginal Language and Culture Co-operative began in 1986, when Gumbaynggirr Elders got together to revive their language and hand it down. Muurrbay means ‘white fig tree’ in the Gumbaynggirr language. We support Aboriginal people, particularly Gumbaynggirr, in the revival and maintenance of their language and culture, and so strengthen their sense of identity, self esteem and links to country. We provide vital support to Aboriginal communities who want to revitalize their languages; covering an area from the Tweed to the Hawkesbury River and six languages: Bundjalung-Yugambeh, Yaygirr, Gumbaynggirr, Gathang, Awabakal-Wanarrua and Darkinyung.'
