• MMEIC have established a mini bush tucker trail in the grounds of our office building at 2 Mitchell Crescent, Dunwich.
    This Bush Tucker Trail is the proto type for the Trail being developed at Terra Bulla Luemeah Conservation Reserve.
    Each Bush tucker plant is marked and cross referenced to a page in the following book:
    K. Stephens & D Sharp (2009). The Flora of North Stradbroke Island. Brisbane: queensland Herbarium, environmantal protection Agency.
    This publication is the result of a co-operativepartnership between Consolidated rutile Limited, Queensland herbarium EPA, and the Minjerribah Moorgumpin Elders-in-Council.
    This book is a great educational tool to learn about the bush tucker plants of Minjerribah and their specific uses.
  • Aboriginal people have instincts close to nature. We can see things through nature and have learnt to live with and respect the environment. It is hoped that this booklet will help children appreciate the lifestyle, culture and history of the Nunukul, Nughie and Goenpil people of Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and Moorgumpin (Moreton Island). Our knowledge has been passed down through many generations and we hope that readers will value our stories and understand our connection to the islands and the bay. Minjerribah/Moorgumpin Elders
  • A dictionary of language spoken on Stradbroke and Moreton Islands based on words remembered by all Elders and recorded by interested visitors to our shores.
  • This booklet was produced with two issues in mind. Firstly to educate and give people an insight into the plants used by the Aboriginals of Minjerriba (North Stradbroke Island) Moorgumpin (Moreton Island) and the surrounding areas - these plants were a food source and medicinal source (and other uses). Secondly, an introduction to the language used by the Aboriginals and Minjerriba and Moorgumpin. Over the years, the descendants of the traditional owners have strived to revive our traditional languages i.e.: Jandai, Gowar and Moongar - remember the words/languages spoken today is a mixture of Goorumpil, Noonuccal and Nguhi tribes of the area. The Aboriginal people of Minjerriba are endeavouring to retrieve, record and revive their language, to preserve their culture and heritage for future generations as Aboriginal culture is one of mans oldest cultures.
  • Cultural Talks are implemented with the aim of developing community awareness to gain recognition and respect for the Aboriginal cultural heritage of the region to inform students and the general public of, and respect for, the Island's unique Aboriginal culture.

    The Cultural Talks are delivered by Elders from MMEIC who have a great wealth of knowledge of the local culture and tradition passed down through the generations. The majority of groups that attend the talks are from Primary and Secondary Schools and Educational Institutions. These groups are indigenous and non-indigenous people with immense interest in seeking knowledge and understanding of our Aboriginal culture.

    • Limit of 30 students per group
    • Cultural talks can be delivered at various sites on the island including the MMEIC building.
