The Wulgurukaba people are the Traditional Owners of Saunders Beach and their communion and contact with the land and sea is told throughout the Townsville region in many places e.g. the paths leading from the Garabarra Entrance at Jezzine Barracks, the Gabul Way that snakes around the cliffs of Magnetic Island and Wulgurukaba Plant Trail here at Saunders Beach.
Over time it will be Saunders Beach History Project’s great pleasure to feature images each of these places. Hope you enjoy them.
Jezzine Barracks redevelopment is a 15 hectares heritage open-space project provided by Townsville City Council and the Queensland and Australian Governments. It is located at Kissing Point area of Townsville.
The Wulgurukaba people and the Bindal people called this area Garabarra.
