Wadda Mooli

Wadda Mooli means welcome, good-bye and greetings in the Birrigubba language. Birrigubba is the language spoken by the Bindal  on of the Traditional Owners in the Townsville area. We acknowledge the traditional owners from the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups where our students and staff work and pay our respect to the Bindal and Wulgurukaba peoples in Townsville.

JCU acknowledges that Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the original inhabitants and traditional custodians of this continent and that they have unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land and waters. You can read about JCU's commitment to Reconciliation.
