They all stem from our apical ancestor Warri, her ancestors still occupy this area and keep their cultural traditions alive through Cultural Heritage activities offered by Ngarang-Wal G.C.A.A Inc. Their families have carried out Cultural Heritage on this land for many years and Ngarang-Wal G.C.A.A Inc. has been involved for over 50 years in Aboriginal affairs around the Gold Coast.
The name Ngarang-Wal means ‘Nerang River’ and they choose this title as their people were close to the river, they sourced food from it and used as a transport passage to the salt water. They are known as the ‘Saltwater people’ too, there is enormous & significant evidence of Kombumerri occupation on the banks of the Broadwater and many other places here on the Gold Coast.
