This day was sent by Gumbaynggirr ancestors a long time ago - speaking through spirit to us all.

Today was a significant day for the Gumbaynggirr community who re-laid to rest their ancestor in a moving ceremony at the bend in the river which gives Nambucca (Ngambaa Baga Baga - crooked knee) its name.
