Join us at 11am on Saturday the 7th of December in a Generational Walk with & in our Spirit Ancestors Footprints on route from Purga to Deebing Creek to make claim to the old Deebing creek mission.

This reserve has significant Spiritual & Cultural Heritage belonging to my people the Yuggera who are Native of this and surrounding areas. The old Aboriginal Reserve of Deebing Creek is 8kl from Ipswich and 4kl as the crow fly’s from Purga.

This was one of the first Aboriginal Missions in Australia and not only has important Spiritual Values but has been a melting pot for all cultures. In 1985 we formed Ipswich Tribal Council & based our claim on our Australian Aboriginal Peoples Charter of Rights.

This document was drawn up in 1980 and modernized in 2013. Our mantras then and now is to make claim to Deebing Creek thus practicing and revitalizing our Ancient Belief system.

My name is Budger Davidson, my Mothers People the Yuggera are Native to Ipswich, Brisbane and surrounding areas and have been since time Immortal. Our Grandmother Mayberry Ford was the last person born at the Deebing Creek Reserve May 1912.

    I heard that Deebing Creek Mission was given back on the 3rd July 2013. So why have a walk to claim something you already have.
