Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, as part of National Trust of Australia (Queensland) (NTAQ) launched their new Ngulli Nyeumba Amphitheatre where local and international students will be immersed in Indigenous culture.

The name Ngulli Nyeumba means “we teach” in the local Yugambeh language, and the artwork for the amphitheatre was created by proud Yugambeh man, Luther Cora.

“The artwork represents people from all journeys of life gathering together to share stories and inspire each other, and symbolises the importance of this place” said Luther Cora.

National Trust of Australia (Queensland) has a long standing commitment to Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, people and culture, and is committed to building on existing relationships and creating further opportunities for world-class recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
