MANY TRIBES ONE COMMUNITY

 

Tig’wah, yHurri gurri

Welcome to Cherbourg

The history of Cherbourg is one of Aboriginal people being forcibly removed and brought from all over Queensland and Northern New South Wales to a newly formed government reserve.

Under the Aborigines Protection Act of 1897 the settlement then called Barambah, was gazetted and established in 1904.

In 1932, the name Barambah was then changed to Cherbourg due to a nearby property called “Barambah Station” which caused confusion in mail delivery.
