CURRIE COUNTRY BOUNDARIES

 

Most Indigenous nations have natural topographical boundaries.

 

Currie Country is bounded by the Logan River (QLD) to the North, the Brunswick River (NSW) in the South + West to the Albert River (QLD).

These rivers flow North to South via the Rous River. The connection of these waterways is Currie Country. Jame's + Ellen's eight surviving children were all born 'on country'.

We respectfully call these Elders the

 

'Solum Eight'.

Learn more about Aboriginal boundaries, history, totems, land lore, and culture by joining us in an CC Experience, or sign up for CC Education.

2022 - Limited Offerings

'Baya' (come into view) - A poignant reveal of Asian Aboriginal and Melanesian history of this continent and told through our eyes, and with incredible food, ritual, and reverence. 

This experience is part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival - Greenstone + Gold at Rockpool Melbourne.

 

'Nyah' (senses) offers connection through food, trade, and exchange, and tells of a continent rich with science, philosophy, and connection and systems that support the thriving of all things including humans, and how we may embrace these notions to enrich our spirits and senses.  

Nyah is part of the experience with Ides as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival called 'Jiran Kuurrokeheaar' where we will honour Waa, the crow who plays a central part in the 'star lores'. Kuurrokeheaar is known as Seven Sisters, the constellation known in the west as the Pleiades, that features prominently in many Aboriginal cultures, and is known to us as Jiran.
