Jabu Birriny, meaning ‘land’ and ‘sea’, celebrates the unique environment of Yarrabah and its ongoing importance to culture and people.

Located on the shore of Cape Grafton in Far North Queensland, Yarrabah is the traditional Country of the Gunggandji people. It is a dynamic Aboriginal community surrounded by tropical native bushland and mountain ranges united by sandy coastlines and coral reefs.

The exhibition brings together stories rich in lineal, past and recent histories through vibrant prints, woven vessels and textured ceramics that embody their land and sea.
