Indigenous Australian Meanings

In Sociology I have been researching a lot about Indigenous Meanings and thought I should share some here relating to where I live.

- I live in Canberra, derived from Kambera meaning “Meeting place”

- This is Ngunnawal Country being the original Indigenous residents of this area. It is the name of the native language and the native people of this area.

- I live in Cooinda St, Cooinda means “Happy Place”

- The lake near where I live is called Ginninderra, which means “Sparkling like the stars”
