Gimbawali Place: a constellation of stories, a community of belonging

Gimbawali is a Dharug word from the Dharug people, the traditional custodians of the land in Carlingford. We value the engagement we continue to have with members and elders of the Dharug community, both now and throughout the building and naming process.

'Gimbawali' means stars/light/guiding home.

The three interlinked buildings at Gimbawali are named: 'Yudi' (to escort/or to see home), 'Birrung' (stars) and 'Nura' (country).

Together they mean: ‘Everyone is welcome, under the stars, on Country’.
