Bidyara and Gungabula

Our Culture

Added by First Languages Australia

Description John Waterton teaches the Bidyara and Gungabula languages in the central Queensland town of Woorabinda.

The languages were thought to be lost for many years, but through the hard work of people like John, they are being reintroduced back into the community.

Here, John takes us through the parts of the face.
