Welcome to Nambucca Heads

Nambucca (nam-buk-a) means ‘many bends', and the river valley was ruled by the Gumbaynggirr people until European timber cutters arrived in the 1840s. Strong Aboriginal communities remain in Nambucca Heads and up the valley in Bowraville; the activist and historian Gary Foley hails from here.
