First Peoples

The Mt Nebo Residents’ Association believe it is important that our community and visitors are reminded of the Aboriginal history, spirit and culture of the area.

In 2012 the National Native Title Tribunal formally recognised the Jinibara as having long held native title to this area. Jinibara country covers the D’Aguilar, Blackall and Conondale ranges and some parts of the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane River.

Our community worked closely with the Jinibara to develop an Aboriginal Recognition site which was opened in 2019, the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages.

This page will be linked to a QR code at the Recognition site and possibly other sites, and will contain information about the first peoples of the area.
