First Nations Place Names on the Sunshine Coast

FN Place Names Map Image (1)

Dr Ray Kerkhove researched Sunshine Coast First Nations place names and their meaning to produce a map and list that reflect historical records and archival sources.

Note: the map will be continuously updated based on further consultation with Kabi Kabi and Jinibara traditional custodians. There are variations to the English spelling as words are based on spoken language.
