Our Culture

Added by First Languages Australia

Description 'This Place' is a partnership between the ABC and First Languages Australia inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create a short video about a place name, and the story behind it. Share with ICTV with support from the Community Benefit Fund.

Bobbinawarra is Bangerang for pelican, and you are almost guaranteed to see one in the lakes, ponds and rivers that surround this tiny locale. Bangerang elder uncle Freddie Dowling tells how inland pelicans came to be.
