Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Aboriginal Inhabitants of the Lamington region-southeast Queensland-northern New South Wales

At the time of European settlement the area of what is now the Lamington National Park was inhabited by Aboriginal People of several tribal groups, the Birinburra, Kombumerri, Wanggerriburra and the Migunberri. They were of the Yugambeh Language Group. Other members of the group lived in the Gold Coast and Tweed areas, including the hinterland, from about the Logan River to the Tweed River. Prior to European settlement, the aboriginal people had been living comfortably in the area for thousands of years, needing only a few hours of the day to collect enough food for their group. In fact, in the early days of settlement, the Europeans only survived because of the trade in food with the Aboriginal People.
