The Local Aboriginal Languages Project is a celebration of the Local Aboriginal Languages presented in a series of short films created collaboratively with Traditional Owners, Community Elders and working group members, as shared by Lyndon Davies.

The films also highlight the natural environment of Moreton Bay Region.

This project has been a community collaboration between Moreton Bay Region Council, the Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi traditional custodians and community. It was made possible by Strategic Priorities grant funding from the Queensland Government and the State Library of Queensland.
