About this language group

The Gubbi-Gubbi or Kabi Kabi people are from South East Queensland Australia and are one of the many Aboriginal People Groups.

You may have noticed 2 names the first Gubbi Gubbi and the second Kabi Kabi, both are correct for this part of QLD. Some can explain it by pronunciation of their parents. Some of our parents pronounced the name Gub-ie Gub-ie but some of our people pronounce the word Kub-ie Kub-ie. Other spelling-Gabi Gabi

It's best to say both names when talking about this place

We have our own distinct language, songs, stories and culture. We differ from all other Aboriginal Tribes/language groups. The Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi are a well rounded group, utilising both the salt water, fresh water, beaches and mountains.

Our cultural ways and experiences can be seen within the below information in links.
