Lombadina CommunityThe Lombadina Community was established as a partnering community for the monks Beagle Bay mission.
They constructed a church here also, using different materials from the area. The walls are constructed using wood from the nearby mangroves and the roof, now covered in corrugated iron, was initially paperbark.
In modern times, Lombadina and the neighbouring settlements have embraced commercial opportunities such as tourism and the manufacture and sale of hand-made items like jewellery, dugout canoes and other artefacts.
There are opportunities to make a connection with, and understand these amazing people.
Perhaps you could join one of the fishing or mud crabbing tours, watching the way the Aborigines work in harmony with the land. At all times, the land and the Aboriginal traditions must be respected.
Do not enter settlements or restricted areas without an invitation, this will minimise your impact on burial and sacred sites in the areas.
