Yaegl Country – the Lower Clarence

A senic drive visiting sites significant to the Yaegl mob on the Lower Clarence and Yuraygir coast

Trail information

This short scenic tour of the lower Clarence visits a collection of sites significant to the local Yaegl community. Bright orange signs at each site share their cultural stories.

Stories are best told in context, where you can imagine families gathering food on the shoreline, or celebrating at a meeting place with other local clans. The locations of four camp sites are shown, where the people were pushed after the arrival of white men to live in missions or beyond the edge of town. Some of the stories you will have to work for, for example by walking part way on the Angourie Walking Track, so pack some water and a hat.

There are two midden sites, at Barrie Point and Woombah. We haven’t found either yet, the Clarence Valley brochure is somewhat brief on location detail, so our locations are indicative only, not accurate. If you find the signs, let us know, else we will try again to locate them when we are next riding in the area.
