The ‘Loud Thunder Cultural Trail’ and Jimboomba State School would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of this land. This trail is built on Yugumbir land. Within this land are two traditional groups, Mununjali (Beaudesert) and Gugingin (Northern people- Jimboomba). Jimboomba is a traditional name, meaning – ‘Loud thunder (place where the sound ends), little rain’.
respects go out to all of the unique and diverse nations of indigenous
Australians. I trust that this trail respectfully highlights the importance of
many sacred sites and traditions. It is extremely important that more people
recognise the importance of sacred sites as more than a tourist attraction, but
as a valuable piece of indigenous religion and tradition. This trail has been
made to promote the education of people, to travel, to look, listen, learn and
respect these amazing sites.
