DARRIYAY YILAAMING

Darriyay yilaaming (welcome) to Wajaana Yaam Gumbaynggirr Adventure Tours! Wajaana Yaam translates to ‘from this country’ in the local Gumbaynggirr language.

We offer a 2.5 hour adventure paddle in Coffs Harbour’s Solitary Islands Marine Park on the NSW North Coast, home of the Bundi Barrway – Big Banana!

Paddle with the direct descendants of the world’s first stand up paddlers and connect to land and sea through stories and language and collect and taste seasonal bush tucker.

No fitness level or SUP/kayak experience is necessary to participate in our tours. Our qualified instructors provide a SUP lesson at the commencement of each tour in order to ensure a highly enjoyable and safe experience for all.

By undertaking our tour you contribute to the well-being of our community. Our social enterprise provides an employment pathway for our youth and community members through knowledge of language and culture. Furthermore, a percentage of our profits are invested in bmnac.org.au in order to ensure that our youth are ‘2 path strong’ – strong in culture and strong in education.

So yilaami! Come and have fun, connect with country and contribute to our community.
