Barron Gorge Bama Plan Project

 

Djabugay Native Title Aboriginal Corporation is commencing a planning project for Barron Gorge National Park. The plan will look at 3 key areas:

 

1. Developing a Bama plan for the determined area. Our plan that will capture our aspirations.

 

2. Look at the type of arrangement that we should consider for management - Cooperative management to give us more say in the planning and management of Barron Gorge National Park.

 

3. Investigate and build upon possible economic and employment opportunities for Djabugay people. Building outcomes that provide wealth creation and ongoing employment for our mobs.

 

We want to hear from Djabugay speaking people, and hear thier views on the project and they outcomes they may see through this process. There will be more details coming soon about the project and we will also have consultation sessions to gather feedback from Djabugay people.
