First Nations

Areas within the Sunshine Coast have been the ancestral homelands of the Kabi Kabi and the Jinibara Peoples and have significance and spiritual meaning.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the traditional Country of the Kabi Kabi and the Jinibara Peoples of the coastal plains and hinterlands of the Sunshine Coast, and recognises that these have always been places of cultural, spiritual, social and economic significance. We wish to pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging, and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Sunshine Coast community.
