Read a Welcome Message from Mayor Ross Andrews
“SES and rural fire is all about volunteering. Volunteering your time even during work hours and even after work hours, you are volunteering. You know you are doing something good for the community, you are not doing it for your family you are not doing it for your friends, you are doing it for the community.” Vincent Schreiber.
Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council fosters unity, respect for elders, celebrate courage, facilitate connection, refine for efficiency and acknowledge equality and govern with integrity.
The Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council (YASC) wishes to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land within the shire boundaries – the Gunggandji and Yidinji peoples; and the area agreements developed through previous negotiations that provide clear opportunities and processes for traditional owners to be formally involved in the land planning process.
The Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council also wishes to acknowledge the historical people brought here to Yarrabah from various locations by government policies of the past.
