WARRAMBUL STORIES

Warrambul - The Milkyway or water course, the big bagaay (river) in the sky. This sacred place in the sky is very important to the Gomeroi/Gamilaraay peoples, as our creation beings live here and our passed love ones and ancestors that watch over us.

Our ancient stories are passed onto us when our old people believe we demonstrate that we are ready for them, these stories have hidden messages embedded in them to guide us throughout our journey pre-life, life itself and also the after-life.

The most visual of our cultural objects in the night sky are the dhinawan (emu), Miyaymiyaay (7 sisters), Birraybirraay (orient belt), Yarraan (southern cross), Bariyan Ngama (5 wives).
