Yawuru people are the traditional owners of the lands and waters around Broome, and are very involved with the local community, culture and country. In particular, the NBY Environmental Services team who undertake research and land management projects across the whole of Yawuru’s saltwater country.

When you visit Minyirr Park fringing Broome’s famous Cable Beach, you may see the areas where the Women’s Country Manager team is revegetating this popular public space and looking after the threatened ecological community of Monsoonal Vine Thickets.

The men’s Country Manager team works on the expansive Roebuck Plains Station and looks after important ecological and cultural wetlands. Their work is varied and includes fire mitigation, feral animal control, photo point monitoring, fencing, or turtle monitoring out on stunning Nagulagun Roebuck Bay with our partners the DBCA Yawuru Rangers.

We welcome you to Yawuru country and hope you appreciate its unique beauty and cultural values and spend your time in peaceful enjoyment. Gala mabu (thank you)
