Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council wishes everyone a happy and safe Easter. In preparation for the holidays in Cape York – please read the attached road safety messages about driving the Peninsula Development Road.

We acknowledge Wujal Wujal as the home of the Kuku Yalanji, Kuku Nyungul and Jalunji clans – the ‘rainforest people’, the traditional owners and custodians of our area. Located in a World Heritage site abundant with sacred waterfalls in the Bloomfield Valley, Wujal Wujal means ‘many falls’ in our local language.
Our people welcome all visitors to our area to hear our stories and learn of the history and heritage alive in our country today.
Wujal Wujal is the local Kuku-Yalanji clan name meaning ‘many falls’, highlighting the many sacred waterfalls in our landscape. This image also captures our multifaceted region of ranges, rivers and reef. It reflects our sparkling coastline and abundant wildlife. And most of all, our many peoples and languages. Our ancestry dates back on our traditional lands for thousands of years and our indigenous language is still spoken in the community. Our local clans are the Kuku Nyungul and Jalunji peoples and the Eastern Kuku Yalanji who have native title to the Wujal Wujal area.
