Gunya Yanakie Nanjet Brataualung

GLaWAC are excited to announce that the organisation, on behalf of our members, has purchased a 103-hectare parcel of land in Yanakie, South Gippsland, next to Yiruk Wamoon (Wilsons Prom National Park) and Corner Inlet Marine and Coastal Park.

This land purchase is a wonderful opportunity for our members to maintain a connection to this area and enables GLaWAC to continue to protect cultural values and uses, gain economic independence, and heal Country.

The property, just 500m from the entrance to Yiruk Wamoon (Wilsons Prom National Park), will be known as Gunya Yanakie Nanjet Brataualung which means ‘Home beyond the sandhills of the Nanjet people of Brataualung” in Gunaikurnai.

It has all the necessary zoning and permit approvals to offer a unique cultural tourism opportunity.

We look forward to yarning with the Gunaikurnai Community and others to enable self-determination in managing this site to help achieve priorities for a healthy Country and healthy mob.
